This park opened in 1991 as a community garden owned by the Metro Nashville Department of Transportation, and managed by local nonprofit EarthMatters. In 2006, it was rechristened George Washington Carver Food Park. Over time, it gained a greenhouse, a garden, and a large community presence with events like Greenpeace rallies, Veggie-B-Ques for Memorial Day, and multicultural festivals. Eventually, things got to be too much. Neighbors began to complain to the state about debris, smells, traffic, and finally the state took back over the land. This 5 acre park re-opened in 2013 as Gale Lane Community Park, and has a cute paved path in a loop around a grassy area, and not much else. It's a surprising spot of peace, even as it hugs the traffic of 440. If I lived in this neighborhood, I'd absolutely take advantage of this park.
