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 baseball fields are used for practice and games by the local Pee Wee and Little League
baseball teams in the spring and the Pee Wee football teams in the fall. 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 River.
Central Park is located in the center of town on the
East side of Main Street next to the Police Department. 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.
