PICTURE A TRANSFORMED CENTENNIAL PARK
The Centennial Park Revitalization will make this a reality for our community.
PICTURE A DESTINATION FOR WELLNESS
Phase Two of the Centennial Park Revitalization will significantly expand the number of walking, jogging, and biking trails throughout the park. It will enhance the Park's core 19-acres and provide a respite for individuals and families to play, picnic, read, run and enjoy a beautiful urban green space.

PICTURE A SUSTAINABLE URBAN GREEN SPACE
We envision a beautifully balanced expanse where you and countless others have ample room to enjoy a natural environment that is significantly more sustainable. We are enhancing the park’s delicate ecosystems, increasing the number of trees by, and continuing to improve the park's water quality.

PICTURE AN ILLUMINATED PARTHENON
The role of the Parthenon in the history and contemporary cultural life in Nashville cannot be overemphasized. The Parthenon shares a great affection with the local population and visitors are in awe that it exists in the middle of our city.
The Parthenon will be illuminated with an impressive daily lighting feature to emphasize the building’s quiet elegance and reveal its three-dimensionality at night. Each of the architectural and decorative elements will come alive sequentially until the building is fully lit. At the end of the evening the building will slowly "go to sleep" leaving the Parthenon glowing softly. Incorporating these lightning components will showcase the Parthenon with distinction and become another enhancement to our glorious central park.

PICTURE A COMMUNITY GATHERING SPACE
The Event Pavilion Phase will revitalize the Park Plaza section of the park - our connection to North Nashville. The highlight of this phase is the building of a world class events pavilion where the Nashville community can gather for various types of events. The event pavilion will bring our community together by serving as a destination for ongoing local events, including nonprofit fundraisers, music performances, festivals, educational children's events, lectures, and the park's popular Big Band Dances. This phase is currently in design development, and we are actively fundraising to support it.

PICTURE YOUR IMPACT ON OUR CITY
Centennial Park has been a Nashville treasure for 115 years. Like all well-loved treasures, Nashville's aging central park needs our help to restore, enhance and protect it as the pulsating heartbeat of of our city. During this time of unprecedented growth, it is vital we preserve our limited urban green spaces, so they will flourish and serve current and future generations.
