The Village of Nashville is proud to announce the opening of the long-awaited Putnam Park bathroom facility and Thornapple River handicap accessible fishing deck. The Village will hold a Dedication ceremony on September 28th at 6pm at 715 N Main St - the entrance to Putnam Park. The Nashville Village Council would like to invite all area residents to join them at the ceremony to commemorate this addition to our local parks and thank the MDNR for their help making this dream come true.


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 ballfields, an undeveloped mowed grass field, a small playground, the lower river access boat ramp, 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 and has tables that will seat a large party. There are two BBQ's available for visitors use. There is also restroom facility and a handicap accessible fishing deck . Putnam Park is located on Main Street at the north end of town just past the Thornapple River.

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.

The parks committee is in the process of undating the Parks Plan. They are looking to have a new plan in place in early 2018.
