VILLAGE OF NASHVILLE PARKS SYSTEM
The Village of Nashville has three parks and two boat
ramps within the village limits
Riverside Park is the largest of Nashville's parks. It contains two ball fields,
an undeveloped mowed grass field, a small playground, the lower river access boat ramp, a crude foot path that follows the
river and a large natural area. The main portion of the park is very open and sunny. It is located behind the west store fronts
in the downtown area on Main Street.
Putnam Park, the second largest of Nashville's parks, contains many large
trees and comes off of a high hill all the way down to the river's edge. It is very shady and cool due to the overgrowth
of large trees. It has one tennis court and one basketball court. The playground in the park has many pieces of play equipment
which has been updated over the last few years. The picnic pavilion is in good shape after a recent rebuild. There are two
BBQ's available for visitor use. Putnam Park is located on Main Street at the north end of town just past the Thornapple
Central Park is located in the center of town on the East side of Main Street. It consists of a large village
lot with a wood gazebo and a few trees and flower beds. There is not a playground located in this park, it is mainly for sitting
and enjoying the surroundings.
