E.S. ROSE PARK
Belmont University has partnered with Nashville’s Metro Board of Parks and Recreation to provide $8 million worth of enhancements to nearby E.S. Rose Park which would also allow the University to lease space for athletics. Rose Park opened for play in April 2011.
With a majestic view of the downtown Nashville skyline, the enhancements at Rose Park provide new resources for the Edgehill community and Belmont student-athletes including accessible walking trails and softball, baseball, track and soccer fields.
In fact, in just its fourth-ever game at Rose Park, Belmont Baseball set an NCAA record with 19 runs in the first inning against UT-Martin. Rose Park also sparked the Bruins’ historic run to the Atlantic Sun Championship and a regional finalist showing in the 2011 NCAA Baseball Championships.
The Metro Parks Board will maintain the exclusive authority to schedule the use of the park and will remain the sole owner of the park and its improvements. Utilizing the new sports fields and their accompanying concessions will be neighbors from the Edgehill community, athletic teams from nearby public schools, the youth and adult recreational programs of Metro Parks, neighborhood churches, community groups, nonprofit sports organizations and Belmont University.
The university also agreed to award eight full Belmont scholarships and two partial ones to students in the Edgehill community and help sponsor neighborhood little league baseball and softball teams.
