Browns Creek Park

Updated: Nov 28, 2020

Browns Creek is an arm that comes out of the Cumberland River, downtown near Trevecca University. It snakes through Nashville, past the fairgrounds, through Berry Hill, forking at Battlemont park. the West Fork ends a little bit before Radnor Lake, and the Middle Fork ends a stones’ throw away from the Governor’s Residence. The creek itself was placed on lists of creeks that were dangerously contaminated by the Environmental Protection Agency in the early 2000s. Since then, there have been many cleanup efforts and protection efforts for the creek.

This particular plot of land was previously homes that were devastated during the 2010 flood. It was purchased by the city of Nashville, and repurposed as a park that opened 2012, with almost fully 10 acres. There is a paved loop that is almost three quarters of a mile. The park is filled with shady trees, wide spots of green fields, and views of the creek. It is tucked behind an apartment complex, and the parking isn’t easy for the GPS to find, but otherwise, this is a wonderful little walk.
