Nashville’s Cumberland Park is on the shortlist for a national prize.
The Urban Open Space Award recognizes projects that transform land in order to spur community revitalization. The play space next to LP Field is one of five finalists for the honor, which comes with $10 thousand dollar in prize money.
Cumberland Park opened last year as the first stage of a much larger plan to renovate downtown Nashville’s riverfront. It cost $9 million to renovate the former brownfield.
