The newest 11-acre addition to Riverfront Park
has a rich and varied history, from rail lines
to most recently functioning as the site of the
Nashville Thermal Transfer Plant. The thermal
plant was the first waste-to-energy facility in the
U.S. when it was established in 1972. The plant
was razed in 2004, and environment mitigation
followed. Its resurgence as a public open space
prompted a lot of conversations in around
Nashville. Suggestions for the space included
multiple mixed-use office developments, a
baseball park and a music venue.
