Stones River Bend Regional Park Master Planning

Stones Building and Tree Stones - Ravenwood bridge

Located on a major bend in the Stones River and including property that was once the Ravenwood Country Club, Ravenwood Park will be one of Nashville's next regional parks. Stones County Context

Ravenwood site property map

Ravenwood Park, uniquely surrounded by almost four miles of highly scenic river frontage, is only a few miles from downtown Nashville. It is tucked off of Lebanon Road between the Donelson and Hermitage neighborhoods in a large bend of the Stones River just south of the confluence of the Stones River and the Cumberland River. The farm is extraordinarily beautiful and has a rich history.

The Stones River greenway currently runs along the edge of the site connecting this large park to Shelby Bottoms to the west and the Percy Priest Dam to the east. Stone hall, the local historic landmark known as the Donelson Home was acquired in 2007 and sits at the front of the site along Lebanon Pike.

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.
