Cumberland River Greenway & Levee Greenway

Two overlapping paved, riverfront greenways are in the heart of the downtown Nashville/MetroCenter area.

The section north of I-65 is also known as the MetroCenter Levee Greenway.

Add-Ons/Loop Options: Cross over the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge near the Ascend Amphitheater to the eastern side of the river, and do a loop incorporating the E. Bank Greenway, Cumberland Park, and Nissan Stadium.
