The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park, a non-profit organization aimed to promote Nashville’s Parthenon and Centennial Park, recently announced “Songs for Centennial Park,” the first of many events planned to raise funds for the park’s restoration. The show will feature performances by Matthew Perryman Jones, Andrew Ripp, Carolina Story, and Hush Kids.
The Conservancy hopes to raise funds through ticket sales to begin Phase Two of the park’s revival. During Phase One of the process, completed in 2015, the water quality of Lake Watauga was improved, bees were brought in to pollinate surrounding trees and shrubs, a designated space was created for free concert series Musicians Corner, and new landscaping was installed.
The second phase of this project, scheduled to begin this spring, will restore the park’s Great Lawn, increase the amount of walking, jogging and biking trails, install new lights to showcase the Parthenon, and fund construction for a new pavilion that will house a variety of events.Tickets for the event can be purchased HERE. All proceeds benefit Phase Two of Centennial Park’s restoration.
