If you haven’t been to Church Street Park lately, you’re in for a treat. The revitalized park — which reopened in 2021 after nearly a year of renovations — is bringing new life to the downtown core with free events happening daily.

To kick off its summer activities, Nashville Downtown Partnership is hosting a Church Street Park Open House — a free, all-day event giving locals a taste of everything that brings the community together at the park: food, art, music, yoga, kids activities, and (of course) our furry friends.

Fun fact: Daily programming is funded by Amazon to activate this local gem.
