ABOUT THE CENTENNIAL PARK REVITALIZATION
The Centennial Park Master Plan was developed in 2010 in collaboration with Mayor Karl Dean, Metro Parks, and The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park to restore, renovate, and revitalize Nashville's Central Park.
- Phase One, completed in 2015, was a $9 million public/private partnership that improved the water quality of Lake Watauga, unearthed long-buried Cockrill Spring, built a dedicated space for Musicians Corner, and created a new parking area surrounding the Parthenon.
- Phase Two includes revitalizing the great lawn; doubling the amount of walking, jogging and biking trails; and constructing a new outdoor pavilion for a wide variety of events.
ABOUT THE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
As we embark on Phase Two of the Centennial Park Revitalization, The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park created the Centennial Park Capital Campaign to bring the Nashville community together in supporting our ambitious initiative to preserve, enhance and sustain our people’s park for future generations.
Donations made to this campaign will help underwrite Phase Two of the Centennial Park Revitalization
ABOUT THE CONSERVANCY
The Parthenon and Centennial Park have been essential to our city's fabric for more than a century.

ABOUT CENTENNIAL PARK
Established shortly after the 1897 Tennessee Centennial Exposition and listed on the exclusive National Register of Historic Places, Centennial Park is one of America's official cultural resources worthy of preservation.
A designed landscape on one hundred twenty-two acres in the middle of Nashville, Centennial Park contains buildings and monuments that both maintain historical integrity and are, in many cases, one-of-a-kind, architecturally. The centerpiece of the park, the Parthenon, has been on the National Register since 1972.
Throughout Centennial Park’s history, Middle Tennesseans have rallied to preserve and enhance it. Now it’s our turn. Join us in making a donation to the Centennial Park Capital Campaign.
