A Huge Opryland Waterpark Might Be On The Way

A Huge Opryland Waterpark Might Be On The Way

Normally as we inch toward February, I’d be thinking about homes with cozy fireplaces. But as I step outside in a T-shirt, right now I’m thinking a little more about a place with a salt-water pool.

Naturally, I enjoyed reading this week about the possibility of a “huge water park” at Opryland over in the Donelson area in Nashville.

The Nashville Business Journal’s story on the proposed park noted that the “three-story building would include ‘multiple water-based attractions’ including an array of slides and an outdoor wave pool with beaches.” And the rendering from Blur Workshop, which you can see above… well, that looks like an OK place to spend a summer (winter?) afternoon.

It’s really early on in the process, so I’m not exactly breaking out the swim trunks yet, but it’s an interesting proposition, and an interesting addition to the already-buzzing Donelson area. Coupled with the fact that Donelson was recently ranked among the nation’s 20 hottest residential zip codes, and with the already existing Nashville Shores waterpark just down the way in Hermitage, that part of town could become our buzzed-about water-wonderland in a few years.

With that in mind, for this week’s Open House roundup, I’m focusing on homes that’ll put you close to that potential new Opryland waterpark, in Donelson and Hermitage.

First, the wider picture:


Then, my picks:

3047 Penn Meade Way

Nashville, TN 37214


A heads up for my first-time buyers: This River Glen home has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, and is a stone’s throw from Opryland, at under $150K asking. Nice vaulted ceiling in the living room, too. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

3067 Jenry Dr

Nashville, TN 37214


The classic Donelson mid-century ranch, personified. You still see a fair bit of the home’s 1960 history here, and it’s well-kept and homey, on more than a half acre of property. Pretty special bonus: the big screened-in porch, perfect for balmy winters like this. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

3214 Toddway Ct

Nashville, TN 37214


I wish there were more photos of this large mid-century ranch (4 beds, 2 1/2 baths and more than 3100 square feet). But the classic ranch curb appeal is on point, and the Nob Hill location is a great option for Donelson-area househunters — it’s really close to the Music City Star Donelson Station, highly desired Historic Bluefields and — worth noting — Publix. Open Saturday, 2 to 4 p.m.

3997 Couchville Pike

Hermitage, TN 37076


Speaking of being close to water, this charming Hermitage home sits on 19 acres just off the lake, and the privacy/natural beauty are big pluses. Although the exterior has a stone-and-timber rustic cabin look, it’s more contemporary inside, and has tons of space (over 4100 square feet). Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

Thinking about buying a home in the Donelson area, or elsewhere in Nashville/Middle Tennessee? If you need help tracking down that dream home, give me a call or send me an email.
