Nashville is making headlines again, and this time its for its outdoor spaces.
USA Today recently released its list of North America’s Top Urban Green Spaces and Nashville made the list alongside other notable cities including Boston, Boulder, Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco and Vancouver.
In the piece, USA Today named Nashville as a top city, touting Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park, Centennial Park and Radnor Lake State Park.
The short blurb about Nashville reads,
“After Nashville’s May 2010 flood, green infrastructure has become a top priority, and follows a prior commitment to add 22,000 acres of open green space to the city over the next 25 years. Visit one of its more unique sights – the life-size replica of the Parthenon – at Centennial Park (pictured). Hikers also flock to the scenic 1,200-acre Radnor Lake State Park, home to an ecologically diverse number of wildlife habitats.” (Source: USA Today)
We love seeing the city praised over and over again by major news sources. Hats off to those who work hard each and every day to make our green spaces beautiful and enjoyable to all those who call Nashville home.
