We're pretty close to the one-year mark on this project — my effort to visit every Nashville park or thing considering itself a Nashville park — and I must say, the task seems unending. We have a ton of parks.
Some have more to say about than others.
The Church Street Park? There's not a lot to say about it. it's nicely kept. It has some interesting art (I assume the giant bike-lock thing is art?), lovely roses, and some nice trees. I've seen cops on bikes gossiping in it in the early mornings and people crowded into it on beautiful days to sit outside and eat their lunches.
It's just a very nice park and there's something just a touch extravagant about it, a little over the top, like its job is to be a fantasy of what the outside is like for people stuck in nearby office buildings.
