Eastland Park

At 2 and a half acres, Eastland Park sits in a residential corner of East Nashville. The park was founded in 1953, today it hosts a picnic shelter, a playground, a basketball court, and a paved path along the perimeter of the park.

The property was originally the home to Eastland School, which when the school closed, the Metro Board of Education leased the land to the Nashville Parks and Recreation for $1 a year in 1952. It makes sense why it was called Eastland- churches and funeral homes and corner stores on the surrounding streets were monikered “Eastland” as early as the 1920s. A community center was built in 1960 for $23,000, but was torn down in the early 2000s.

The light brisk walk around the perimeter was nice, and you couldn’t help feeling warm and fuzzy with the drapery of these gorgeous Southern gothic willows. there were lots of children playing, and this was a nice neighborhood park.
