Nashville is a beautiful town with a history in the arts that attracts tourists from all over the midwest to visit the galleries, shops, and the legendary Brown County State Park. But skateboarding in the small tourist town of Nashville, IN has been outlawed for decades. With help from Patronicity, Tony Hawk Foundation, Brown County Tourism Board and many individual and private donors, Isaiah Smith and his mom Colleen raised the money to build the community its first skatepark and add amenities like benches, swings and landscaping to beautify the area.
The 5,000 s.f. park site layout includes a 3 pocket bowl with varying elevations and a custom stamped tile band connected to a long street course. Street course includes a flat rail, down rail, multiple ledges and pad combos, target ball feature, hubbas, bank to curb, and a long quarter with a 7’ skateable redbud leaf. The leaf projects out of the long quarter, with scored veins and a decorative acid stain. The park is surrounded by nature and easily boasts the best sunset sessions in Indiana.
