Events Shelter in Centennial Park

The Events Shelter is located in the Northwest corner of the Historic Centennial Park in Nashville. Centennial Park can be accessed from Interstates 65 and 440. The main entrance to the park is located on West End Avenue. There are also entrances to the park from 25th Avenue North, 27th Avenue North and Park Plaza Road.

We will once again ask our participants to park in the HCA parking lots on Park Plaza Road. Look for event signage and volunteers to direct you to the parking areas. The lot directly behind the Shelter will be reserved for handicap parking only.

Walk for Lupus Now Nashville

The Walk for Lupus Now Nashville is a 1, 2 or 3 mile lap along a paved, flat path around the park passing the beautiful Parthenon, duck pond and many flower gardens. Walkers have the option to return to the events shelter after each lap. Strollers and leashed dogs are welcome. Walking maps will be available on Walk day.
