Percy Warner

Beginning next month, Percy Warner Park visitors will notice construction in the overflow parking area on Page Road near the Belle Meade Gates. Construction will begin Monday, Nov. 5 and is expected to be completed by "late winter" in 2019. The project includes a paved parking area, a path to the intersection, low stone walls and trees. 

What to know

"The lack of improvements has resulted in mud and erosion issues, blocked cars and periods of closure," a release said announcing the construction. "This project will result in a maintainable facility that can remain open during all weather conditions, protects the environment, offers an improved visitor experience and is compatible with adjacent residences."

Where can I park?

During construction of the Page Road lot, visitors can find other access lots that offer direct connections to the trail and road network. Alternative parking is available at the following locations.

  • Golf Clubhouse, 1221 Forest Park Drive
  • Deep Well, 6921 Highway 100
  • Chickering Road, 1651 Chickering Road
  • Gaucho Road, 2628 Old Hickory Blvd.
