How Parks Benefit Nashville

Nashville’s park system has a variety of impactful benefits on our community. Parks boost the economy by increasing property values and spurring the progress of new development. In addition, parks provide a place for community members to socialize and stay active by offering recreational activities, greenways, trails, dog parks and more! 

In addition, Nashville’s parks have various environmental benefits, such as reducing air and water pollution, keeping the city cooler and offering a less expensive way to manage stormwater runoff. Parks also make low-income areas more livable by providing a safe and nurturing environment for at-risk youth and have been linked to reduced crime and, in particular, juvenile delinquency. 

Nashville’s park system helps strengthen our community and makes our city and neighborhoods more attractive places to live and work. We invite all Nashvillians to join the effort in investing in parks, open spaces and greenways for all members of our community to enjoy.
