About This Project

Ravenwood Park is a picturesque natural haven, spanning four miles along the stunning riverfront of the Stones River. Nestled within a significant bend of the river just south of where it meets the Cumberland River, this park holds historical significance as the former site of the original Donelson Home, also known as Stone Hall, which still stands along Lebanon Pike.

 

Strategically positioned between Shelby Bottoms to the west and the Percy Priest Dam to the east, Ravenwood Park benefits from its location along the Stones River greenway, which seamlessly connects these neighboring areas.

 

Since its acquisition in 2007, Ravenwood Park has undergone a remarkable transformation. The park now offers a blend of restored and newly constructed amenities, catering to a diverse range of outdoor enthusiasts. Visitors can explore a network of paved and unpaved trails, conveniently marked by trailhead kiosks. An outdoor events space provides a scenic backdrop for gatherings and festivities, while pavilions offer sheltered spots for picnics and relaxation. Playground areas ensure entertainment for younger visitors, and ample parking lots facilitate easy access for all.

 

Multi-courts add versatility to the park, accommodating various recreational activities. Ravenwood Park stands as a testament to thoughtful restoration and modernization, offering a vibrant and welcoming environment for all who seek solace in nature or engage in outdoor pursuits.
