Founded in 1996, this park has 2,100 acres, a nature center, public restrooms, and three hiking trails. Named for the Beaman family, a prominent family in Nashville (to me, most notably, of Beaman Automotive on Broadway). Sally Beaman (who has her own namesake park in Nashville) donated $650K to the city of Nashville in honor of her late husband, earmarked for this land. Starting in the 1960s, this land was privately owned by a group of doctors who used it as a private hunting land. They sold the land in the early 1990s to the city of Nashville for half the appraised value. The creeks inside are Little Marrowbone Creek and Bull Run Creek. It has three trails- the 2mile moderate one-way Ridgetop Trail, the 2mile moderate looped Henry Hollow trial, and the .6mile moderate looped Sedge Hill Trail.
