At the monthly Urban Planet Nashville Meet-Up last Saturday, there was some discussion about the future plans for the Greer Baseball Stadium site, which has been empty since Sept. of 2014. Here are some suggestions that have been bandied about: -Raze the stadium and ig up the asphalt parking lots , do some grading and landscaping, and turn it into a large park, including a few softball fields, tennis courts, a soccer field, dog park, playground, some picnic pavilions, etc.. -Turn the facility into a soccer stadium. -Create a soccer complex with 3 or 4 large fields. -Create a tennis complex with numerous courts and an outdoor arena for hosting pro matches. -Turn it into an extension of the Ft. Negley Park for Civil War battle re-enactments, etc. With the continued population density that is happening in the Wedgwood/Houston area, along with the nearby Gulch and lower SoBro, there is going to be increased demand for public green space. The proposed 13-acre Boathouse Park just east of Rolling Mill Hill along the Cumberland River will help with some of that, but is not the full answer. Thoughts?
