WEST RIVERFRONT

PARK AND

AMPITHEATRE

Nashville, TN

PROJECT SCOPE

Nashville’s new Riverfront Park offers visitors greenways, dog runs, play areas, ornamental gardens and a distinctive amptheatre shaped like a guitar amplifier.  Throughout the park and stage area, lighting was finely-tuned to integrate with landscape elements and accent local materials.  Formerly a brownfield, now a LEED Gold achievement, the 11-acre park’s one mile of paths are lit with full-cutoff precise distribution  luminaires, whereas lawns are lit just enough to be welcoming. Design (inclusive of the creation of custom fixtures) and construction was completed within a two-year window.
