This new park located along the Cumberland River in Downtown Nashville gives beautiful views of the downtown skyline, sits on 11 acres of green space and includes Nashville's first and only downtown dog park. The downtown park includes the Ascend Amphitheater, solar charging stations, an 18,000 sq foot area of botanical gardens maintained by Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, plenty of seating for picnics, or enjoying the view of the Cumberland River from one of the giant porch swings. There are even areas within the park that offer free wifi. The dog park is 13,000 square feet of fenced, eco-friendly artificial turf, and is a great place for Fido to run and play. All the water fountains and bottle filling stations in the park include a fountain for Fido as well.

    Responsible dog owners great park

    I have a medium sized dog and love the size of this dog park. It allows owners to know exactly what their dog is doing and to intervene when necessary. It has Multiple entry points and great views. It's a nice surprise in the city. There is plenty of room for the dogs to run and explore. I love the Astro turf personally because it seems so much cleaner. Everyone picks up after their dogs. There's picnic tables for humans to sit on and dogs seem to love it as a ability course along with the logs. I have seen a mix of breeds, small delicate as well as gentle giants. They all seem fine together here. From a Safety standpoint it's great. It sits below the pedestrian bridge and outside the train spot. I can only assume that due to the visibility from different angles is the reason for lack of rift raft and no one abandoning dogs at this park. There is no seperation for small Or Large dogs. My main gripe is lack of an actual parking space and usable restrooms. There are restrooms but it's been locked since winter as well as water fountains shut off.

    great park in downtown

    Easy to access, but a small area. Not divided into small and large dog area like most dog parks. It's not real grass either - which is a plus after rainy days but a bit weird (for me at least). Not a bad park at all, I just like 'Centennial dog park' better, because there's tennis balls available and it's a much bigger area. Good park overall - very clean!

    New & Amazing!

    Astroturf, water fountain, benches for the humans and fun logs to jump on for the dogs. Beautiful views of downtown. Superb.
