Riverfront Park Sound Meters

Ascend Amphitheater

In Spring 2016, Nashville Parks Foundation funded the acquisition of sound meters for use by Metro Parks to monitor the volume of events at the Ascend Amphitheater.  The meters are tied directly to the sound board at the amphitheater, where sound engineers are required to adjust sound volume to ensure constant compliance with applicable noise ordinances. This effort, along with changes to the timing of sound checks, will help ensure the amphitheater is a good neighbor to nearby residences and businesses.
