Davidson County is home to many nice areas, but it’s tough to match the quaint scenery found at one particularly large bend along the Cumberland river.
Only a 25 minute drive up Gallatin Pkwy[JW1] from Nashville, nestled in a peninsula carved out by the River, the neighborhood of Neely’s Bend has become a prime location for new homeowners. It’s an already established community with roots that go back to early settlers of America, to whom some current residents can trace their heritage back
Just because this peaceful alcove has stood the test of time, doesn’t mean it’s been forgotten or left behind, however. Peeler Park is a recent addition to the area funded by two former Nashville Mayors, Bill Purcell and Karl Dean. The park is built on over 600 acres of land from the Taylor Farm, as well as some unused property along the river. Long range plans are to connect in the future to Ravenwood Park the newest addition to Metro Parks in Nashville.
The Peeler Park Greenway is a short, multi-use trail that runs along the Cumberland River. As part of Nashville’s greenway system, the park offers stellar scenic views on its walking and biking paths. There are also equestrian trails, and boat access for the Cumberland river. If interested you can fly remote-controlled planes from R/C Airfield within the park.
If you’re looking to escape the quiet for a night out, it’s only about 20 minutes to the historical Grand Ole Opry. You can also venture to nearby fun spots in East Nashville or Donelson for some good food. Check out The Pharmacy in East Nashville ( http://thepharmacynashville.com/ ). And Nectar Urban Cantina [JW2] in Donelson (http://www.nectarcantina.com/).
Neely’s Bend also has its own elementary school. And the middle school in the Bend was converted in 2015 into LEAD Neely’s Bend school serving grades 5-12. The first graduating class was in May of 2018. Both are located right off the main thoroughfare of Neely’s Bend Rd.[JW3]
