Centennial Park Capital Campaign


Centennial Park. Nashville's central park and point of pride for generations. An urban park is a fragile thing. And throughout the decades, ours has sometimes been in jeopardy: its iconic Parthenon slated for demolition; its trees felled by tornadoes; its ecosystem damaged by surrounding construction.

Each time, Nashvillians have rallied to protect Centennial Park - and make it better. Now, it's our turn.

Nashville is growing like never before. So are the numbers of people flocking to Centennial Park - an estimated 2 million a year and climbing. Neglect could be the latest threat to its wellbeing. This is our opportunity to transform the park into the pulsating heart of our collective home.

An unprecedented revitalization of Centennial Park is currently underway. It is as ambitious and multi-faceted as Nashville itself. It needs your support today to become reality.
