Just a few minutes from downtown in East Nashville, East Park and Recreation Center is a great place to run off some energy! The park is large, encompassing more than 2 city blocks of green space.
Playscape and Swings
There is a large climbing structure, a spiderweb climber and swings. The climbing structure and slides are on soft padded rubber perfect for little ones to safely crawl. The swings and spiderweb have recycled tire mulch underneath them to pad falls. Bring some snacks and spend some time on the shaded benches next to the playground.
Ball Fields and Walking Trails
In addition to the play equipment, East Park also has a baseball field and a large grass area to run and explore. It is a perfect place for festivals and plays host to the annual East Nashville Beer Fest, Hot Chicken Fest, East Nashville St. Paddy’s Day celebration and more!
