Save Ft. Negley: Urban Park, Greenspace & History in Nashville, TN


0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000.

Nashville's growth is unprecedented. As a 6th generation Nashvillian, in many ways I believe it is marvelous  - but I also want to look out for our city for the long term. 

As fate would have it, 102 years ago my Great-Grandfather founded the Tennessee Ornithological Society (today the oldest conservation group in the southeast) and went on to play an important role in wresting Radnor Lake from the path of developers and into what it is today - an absolute treasure for our community. To honor him, they named the highest point in the park, Ganier Ridge. 

Today, I believe we are at the same crossroads. With thousands of new apartment units and homes in development within 2 miles of Ft. Negley we have an historic opportunity to create a new urban oasis - the Radnor Lake of our time. 

In doing so, we can also, finally, honor many generations of African Americans in Nashville - from the time of enslavement to generations when this neighborhood was, and is, home to important African American heritage. 

Join me. Sign the petition today - demand that an option for KEEPING this Green Space GREEN is considered in an OPEN and TRANSPARENT way for ALL of Nashville.

Alice Ganier Rolli

District 17 Resident
