New England Park | Nashville Community

    A new park in Nashville seeks to honor a local couple whose lives were lost two years ago during the infamous, historic 2010 flood.

    England Park on Delray Drive Lane is named after Andrew and Martha England. The park was built by over 100 Make-A-Smile volunteers who installed picnic tables, playground swings and a walking trail. The park was built in an area that was once submerged by flood water that destroyed the homes that were located on the property.

    Last Thursday, Nashville Mayor Karl Dean joined together with city leaders to dedicate England Park with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

      Thanks to our Mayor Carl Dean, Councilman Buddy Baker, and other Metro officials for England Park in West Nashville. It is a worthy tribute to the England couple who lost their life in the flood. We enjoy the park and walk the track. Could someone tell us the length of the track?
