Ted Rhodes Park

Updated: Apr 8, 2021

Ted Rhodes Park was founded in 1954, and is a plot of land with over 261 acres. It has public restrooms, a football/multipurpose field, soccer fields, tennis courts, a golf course, and a paved pathway- one arm of a Nashville greenway. This was originally called Cumberland Golf Course. At the time, there were a couple of golf courses in town, but they were segregated and there weren't any for the Black community. A group of 150 Black golfers petitioned the city government to reuse an old city property as a golf course for the Black community. It was integrated shortly after it opened. The name was changed in 1969 after Ted Rhodes, a popular professional Black golfer from Nashville. The clubhouse was built in 1976, and was briefly recently tossed out as a potential home for the Nashville Professional Soccer Team. Ted Rhodes park has been home to lacrosse and rugby tournaments and festivals,
