Nashville’s first suburban subdivision is as full of history as it is of shady landscaping and quiet, well-preserved domiciles. A mustering ground for Civil War volunteers, Cherokee Park is the home of Richland Creek Greenway, a two-mile trail which will link the neighborhood to nearby open spaces and shopping areas. Cherokee Park is one of six Nashville districts with Neighborhood Conservation Overlay. Protective residents maintain their own Neighborhood Association Website and have vigorously fought changes in local zoning ordinances to maintain its architectural integrity. The 300 homes in these Tudor-dominated walkways were built primarily in the 1930s. Colonials, Cape Cods and sundry cottages also lurk within the streetscape. Its meandering side streets offer a perfect combination of suburban privacy and urban proximity.
