After more than a year of construction, the new Madison Park Community Center, just north of Nashville, opened to the public on May 31, giving Madtown residents another reason to love their zip code.

The regional center, at 550 North Dupont Ave., has over 25,000 square feet of space for all kinds of community activity, from a fully equipped fitness studio and walking and running track to a dance studio, meeting rooms and more, accessible to just about anyone, with daily visit fees at $3 for adults and $1.50 for kids and seniors.

If you haven’t been by to check it out yet, the center’s open Monday through Thursday 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Friday 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m. to noon. Lots more at

Building and business growth in Madison

That Community Center opening is just one of many bits of big, positive news for Madison, Tennessee, in recent months, showing the growth and blossoming entrepreneurial draw of the area.

In March, Nashville’s best-established craft beer name, Yazoo Brewing Company, announced that it’d be relocating from The Gulch to a much bigger facility in Madison, at 900 River Bluff Drive.

All told, the new Yazoo campus should span six acres just off the river, and, I’ll bet, will become a major gathering spot for Madison and Nashville residents, and a healthy smattering of Goodlettsville and Hendersonville folk too.

In February, the founders of two of Nashville’s best-loved venues, Cannery Row’s Mercy Lounge and East Nashville’s Family Wash, revealed plans for another serious Madison gathering place: an overhaul of the historic (and long-shuttered) Madison Bowl, including bringing in restaurant and music venue components, in something of a nod to New York’s much-loved Brooklyn Bowl.

Latest expectations there: According to District 8 Metro Councilmember Nancy VanReece, we may be bowling/listening/eating and drinking at the new/old Madison Bowl as soon as late November or early December.

Late in 2017, we also learned about a proposed Madison Town Center redevelopment that’d be a big change for the area, with retail, entertainment space, office space and multi-family housing on a 33-acre site on Gallatin Pike.

These are just a few bits of business growth and the quality-of-life boosts that back up The Tennessean’s late-2017 question, “Can Madison become Nashville's next Green Hills?”

I’m not sure it’s headed in a Green Hills direction — or that anyone in Madison really wants it to — but I do feel confident in the fact that Madison, Tennessee’s boom time is at hand.

Buying a home in Madison, Tennessee

Something I really like about Madison, from a real estate perspective: The housing stock is varied there, from big new builds to cozy midcentury ranches, and pieces of property tend to be larger, with many homes sitting on parcels that’d see four to six houses in neighborhoods closer to downtown.

There are a lot of different vibes found in Madison too, from neighborhoods that feel distinctly suburban, to ones that feel more rural. And even with all the growth, the bang-for-the-buck quotient in Madison remains high.

Curious about what the stock of homes for sale in Madison, Tennessee, looks like around now? Below, a few properties on the market that caught my eye on the MLS.
