About the project

Nashville Soundbox is a mobile parklet installation along Nashville's high pedestrian traffic streets. A converted shipping container provides the framework and structure for the parklet, outfitting the interior as music box for all ages. With close proximity to many lower income neighborhoods, this moveable parklet can add a much needed playspace to downtown and urban neighborhoods, not to mention the many visitors walking our downtown streets.

Community impact

Nashville Soundbox created a welcoming space for kids in an area only known for commercial activity and vehicles. The project has opened the community's eyes to the possibility of play and activating spaces, and has also brought attention to pedestrian issues along a major transit corridor.
