Southeast Davidson Regional Park Master Planning

Let's talk About Mill Ridge Park!

It is an exciting time for Nashville! As the city evolves, efforts are being made to inject new life and energy into its surrounding communities. Metro Parks is actively working on the new plans for the Southeast Davidson Regional Park - now called Mill Ridge Park. Along with this new park project, Metro Arts wants to provide a new site-specific art experience to celebrate the community, its history and its future.

Within this context, Daily tous les jours - an interaction design studio from Montreal - has been commissioned to create a new art installation for the park, with the goal of making Mill Ridge Park an exciting destination for everyone.

As part of their research process, Dailytlj would like to invite members of the community to a People, Places and Stories workshop, aimed at revealing the potential of the site, gather insights and look for the common threads of the local identity.

Everyone with knowledge or interest in Mill Ridge Park and the future of Antioch is welcome!

Identified in Nashville Naturally and Nashville Next as the last quadrant of the county in need of a large acreage anchor park, the property will serve the southeast-Davidson community with trails and park facilities that are greatly needed.

The diverse demographics of the Antioch area both economically and ethnically – this area of Nashville has the largest percentage of “new Americans” in the entire county – creates a distinctive opportunity to provide a park designed specifically as an inclusive space for all Nashvillians.

Phase One - Schematic Plans

Metro Parks and the design team kicked off schematic design for the phase one area in January 2018. This began with a site survey so the master plan could be fitted to the site. Schematic plans for phase one allowed park planners to develop a more accurate opinion of probable cost and will now lead the team into the next phase of design - design development. Check back soon for more updates.
