James Park Updated for West Nashville Community Plan

Richland Creek Watershed Alliance (RCWA) has resubmitted the vision for James Park as part of the West Nashville Community Plan Update public process. Our main objective is to present environmental and community values into the character planning for West Nashville- to preserve and enhance Richland Creek and it's connection to the larger ecological corridor. Thank you to graphic designer and RCWA member, Chris Veit, for his contribution creating these illustrations.

We are proposing James Park to be considered to the greenway Master Plan as a urban bird watching connector park. This type of park would establish this historic and environmental significant area to remain less disturbed for wildlife feeding, improving water quality and restoring native species. The community could participate, learn from and enjoy James Park for generations to come by protection of this habitat for migrating birds, bees, butterflies, waterfowl and other wildlife to exist and to remind us of what was observed when Nashville was first founded.

RCWA submitted this vision to Metro- Planning, Parks and Council District 24 Representative Jason Holleman.
