Nashville is a great town with great food, music, and the constant buzz of activity and people. After a while, you may be thinking to yourself that you want to try out one of the amazing nearby neighborhoods to settle down in your own home.
Of course, there are so many neighborhood options! Are you looking for a community-focused, residential getaway that’s still close to all the city happenings?

What a perfect distance away from the hubbub of the city life but close enough to pop in for work or fun activities when you have plans.

The same can be said for the people. You will find young professionals as well as young families and even empty nesters. The same vibe and culture run through it all: community.
The culture of the neighborhood is very, well, neighborly. People are involved in the community and supportive of local businesses. People know their neighbors and feel very comfortable around them. The people of Sylvan Park also love their green space and being active.
