Nashville Greenways

Nashville Greenways connect neighborhoods to schools, shopping areas, downtown, offices, and other important locations. Often located along natural landscape features like streams, rivers and ridges, or along built features, such as railroad corridors and scenic highways, greenways provide valuable greenspace for conservation, recreation and alternative transportation. Greenways provide all citizens with barrier-free access to natural resources and recreational opportunities.
