The Beaman Park Nature Center is an environmental education and recreation facility of the Nashville Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation. The nature center is a place where people and nature come together.

  • We serve as a jump-off point for exploring more than 1700 acres of Nashville's Beaman Park.
  • We offer a wide range of environmental education programs, school field trips, educator training workshops, outdoor recreation programs, and other special activities for people of all ages.
  • We serve as a natural history and education reference center for individuals and groups.
  • We promote and serve as a resource for native plant landscaping.

Our facilities include the nature center which houses natural history displays, programming space, and a library; a 300 foot accessible boardwalk; grounds landscaped with native plants; and the main trailhead for five miles of hiking trails.
