West End Neighborhood Beautification

The West End Neighborhood Beautification project is just one example of how Vanderbilt University is redesigning its campus to be a more park-like setting. This area used to feature many ally and roadways, and have heavy vehicular traffic.  Today former Kensington Avenue and 24th Avenue South, between West End Avenue and Vanderbilt Place, have been transformed into accessible pedestrian-and bicycle-friendly pathways and greenway.
