USA Today ranked Nashville as top city for green spaces in North America, touting Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park, Centennial Park and Radnor Lake State Park.

After the city’s May 2010 flood, green infrastructure has become a top priority, and follows a prior commitment to add 22,000 acres of open green space to the city over the next 25 years,” the article said.

Also included in USA Today’s top ten for best urban green spaces were Boston, Boulder, Chicago, New Orleans, Portland, San Francisco, Savannah, Seattle and Vancouver.
