Nashville To Create New Boat Access On Cumberland River

Nov 12, 2015

This story has been updated to clarify the timeline of the boat ramp project.

Nashville is ready to lease land to build its next boat ramp into the Cumberland River.

To be known as “Cayce Landing,” the miniature park will be built beneath Interstate 24, tucked into an industrial area. It will connect to the Shelby greenway in East Nashville and give the nearby Cayce public housing complex a path to the water.

The Metro Council takes its first vote on leasing land for the park next week. It is owned by the Tennessee Department of Transportation, which would share the property with Metro.

When Metro Parks has funding available, it will be one step in the multi-year riverfront master plan. It follows another boat ramp that opened in September near Nissan Stadium.
