Sally Beaman Park

The original Green Hills library was at 3801 Green Hills Village Drive and built in 1969. However, but 1995, it had woefully overgrown its space. It was the busiest library in Nashville, with 1,000 visitors a day, built to hold 30,000 books, but actually holding 60,000 books. In 1997, the Metro Library Board voted to purchase the property at ++ for $1.1 million. The new building opened October 28th, 2000, at four times larger than its predecessor, and holding 110,000 books,

The park is adjacent to the library. It is 1.53 acres, with a paved trail way, and a garden directly outside the children's section of the library. There's a lot of greenery, and a lot of shade, so it's the perfect place to sit and read your newly checked out book. But there's not a lot of recreation to do here. It is named Sally Beaman Park, after Sally Beaman, an important philanthropist in Nashville history.
