The Nashville Sounds, Portman Holdings (developer of Ballpark Village mixed-use), Metro Sports Authority, and Metro Council are finally all working together to get the Music City Bikeway/Greenway that runs between 5th Ave. North and 3rd Ave. North along the south side of the baseball park permanently open to the public. 

More behind the Nashville Post paywall here:

It sounds like they’re constructing a whole new segment of pavement to service the new mixed use development rather than using the trail that’s already there.

Its just the path that is there is not open because the Sounds have pretty much broken the agreement to keep it open when ballgames were not happening. I guess they were getting too many vagrants roaming around inside the park and they had to keep a security guard there to keep people out of the stadium.

It was a bad plan to start with.

Agree the design flaw should have been obvious to anyone paying attention.  As we all remember, though, the stadium design and construction process was super fast tracked and if there was a voice in the room saying maybe it’s not a good idea to route a public greenway through the ballpark venue, that voice was either not heard or was dismissed.  

But a huge thanks to Freddie for dogging this and taking steps to fix it.

Great article. So nice for this civic treasure to get this sort of national coverage from a parks trade publication. I would, however, take issue with their claim that Centennial Park and the Parthenon are second only to the country music scene as a source of attraction of visitors to Nashville. When visitors find the park they love it, but does anybody plan a trip to Nashville to tour the Parthenon? (Well, perhaps there are some Greek Geeks who would…not so many ordinary tourists.)

I could see some people planning a local trip around it. The same reason you’d go to St. Louis to see the arch, or the Biltmore in Asheville. The Parthenon is obviously a smaller scale, but it’s notable.
