Previously I told you about the beauty of Radnor Lake, located near the neighborhoods of Oak Hill and Crieve Hall in South Nashville Another incredible and thriving part of town has its own gem of natural beauty in Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park.

Shelby Bottoms

As the urban living trend began to take hold of Nashville, the city recognized a need for preserved greenspace.  In the mid-nineties, the planning of Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park began.  Now boasting 960 acres in East Nashville (and within a very short drive of downtown) Shelby Bottoms offers urban residents miles of riverfront trails, as well as paved and primitive trails.  The developments of The Gulch, the newest downtown condos and lofts, as well as the revitalized homes of  trendy East Nashville all are in close proximity to this amazing nature preserve.

This gorgeous oasis offers wildflowers, birds, and amphibians as well as other wildlife to enjoy and marvel at.  With free admission and open year-round from dawn to dusk, it is a peaceful and tranquil place in the middle of a thriving community.  The Nature Center offers a variety of programs and services, most of which are free, to visitors of all ages.  From yoga classes to birding adventures, bike rides to themed walks, scout badge opportunities to bird feeder building, the Nature Center is sure to meet your outdoor and curiosity needs.

If you desire the hustle and bustle of urban living but don’t want to surrender communing with nature, fear not!  Urban living with natural beauty is easily accessed with Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park.
