Cumberland River Pedestrian Bridge

East Nashville

Open to pedestrians and cyclists, this sturdy bridge links Shelby Bottoms Park and its greenway with Two Rivers Park and the Stones River greenway. It's a photogenic stop for a tree-lined view of the river. Plans are afoot for a third greenway, which would link the bridge and greenways here to Opry Mills Mall.
