Greenways for Nashville is thrilled to be joining Metro Nashville Parks and Recreation and Mayor David Briley in the opening celebration of the new 440 Greenway on Saturday, October 27th!

A segment of the City Central Greenway System, this 1.25 mile off-street greenway paralleling I-440 will take users from Centennial Park to Elmington Park. This is the first of a planned 7 mile corridor along 440 that will provide green space recreation and meaningful transportation options while connecting numerous neighborhoods that are currently divided by interstates 40 and 440.

We invite you to join us on Saturday, October 27th at 10:00am at Elmington Park to celebrate with family-friendly activities, food trucks, and live music. Mayor Briley will be joining us for a brief Opening Ceremony Program & Ribbon Cutting at 10:30am, followed by a community greenway walk, skate, or bike on the greenway. Please remember, nothing motorized is permitted on Nashville's greenways.

Thank you to all the partner organizations who will be present: Nashville B-Cycle, Blakemore UMC, Cumberland River Compact, Rivive!, Nashville Connector, Nashville Striders, Turnip Green Creative Reuse, Tennessee Women in Green, Urban Green Lab, Walk Bike Nashville, Richland Creek Watershed Alliance, and West End Middle School!
