Oakwood Park Sneak Peek

Opening Spring 2019 (Tentatively Sat April 13 10 am - subject to change.)

Amazing walk through Oakwood Park - final touches happen early Spring with a Ribbon Cutting being set with Mayor David Briley, Metro Nashville Parks and Recreation and the now being formed Friends of Oakwood Park.
We still have trails to cut through and basketball court resurfacing that requires the temps to be above 50 degrees and rising with no rain. There are many things that will be finalized before the opening in April.
If you want to help with the ribbon cutting or other opportunities to participate, please reach out to the Friends of Oakwood Park.

Notes

  • TDOT has responded to my request to get Ellington Parkway north of Trinity Lane added to the maintenance work list. The folks of D8 will be happy to see the potholes & pavement problems addressed. Particularly around the exits all the way to Briarville.
  • PROPERTY TAX RELIEF DEADLINE APRIL 5: Metro Trustee Charlie Cardwell is reminding eligible property owners over 65 who may qualify for the Tax Relief program (income less than $29,270) and the Tax Freeze program (income less than $41,780). Totally disabled and Disabled Veterans also may qualify. Email for information   The Property Assessor will be at Fifty Forward Madison Station February 12 10am - 12pm.
  • Impossible Crossings: The numbers of people killed and severely injured while walking in Nashville is on the rise. In 2017 we set a new record with 23 people killed while walking. In 2018 we matched that previously unmet record.  No one should be killed walking in our city. Let's commit to eliminating traffic fatalities.
