The Cumberland River Greenway is one of many forming Nashville's system of greenways throughout the city. Nashville's greenways link neighborhoods, schools, shopping areas, the downtown area, offices, recreation areas, open spaces and other points of interest.
The Cumberland River Greenway is a multi-use trail that follows the winding course of the Cumberland River through downtown Nashville. Most of the trail lies on the west/south bank of the river, but it does cross over the Shelby Street Bridge and continues to LP Field. This part of the trail is known locally as the East Bank Greenway.
The trail runs from Ted Rhodes Park to Metro Riverfront Park and LP Field, providing wonderful views of the river and access to Morgan Park and Bicentennial Mall State Park, each via a short spur.
