An Alternative Choice for Church Street Park (part 1 of 3)

This article is the first in a three-part series released every Wednesday from Dec 5th - Dec 19th 2018. Throughout its history the Nashville Civic Design Center has worked extensively to improve the quality of our city’s public spaces – resulting in safer, healthier and better designed communities. This work has affirmed NCDC’s belief that a well designed, and programmed, Church Street Park is not only a valuable civic asset, but a viable alternative to the Park’s current form.

The report looks at five individual sites within their respective “transect zone." They are: Natural and Rural, Suburban, Center, Urban, and Downtown.
