"Seniors and families should take a close look"

I’m not sure whether StreetAdvisor or the local folks chose the name of this neighborhood, but either way it’s appropriate. The area is obviously named for the little triangular park up in the northeast corner of the neighborhood.

A park this small might seem laughable to some, but Elizabeth Park holds a Community Center that makes it unique. The Elizabeth Park Community Center is the only Metro Parks community center where all the programming is aimed at senior citizens. (Other community centers offer senior citizen programs alongside youth and other activities.)

I’m not a fan of houses on small lots with few trees, and you will find some of those in this neighborhood. There are houses with enough shade to suit me, but this neighborhood does look as though it would start feeling crowded at times.

MTA bus route #42 runs through the center of this area. The #22 runs along the north edge, and the #29 runs along the south border of this neighborhood as defined by StreetAdvisor.

"A smaller area of Nashville, Tennessee"

Elizabeth Park is closely situated to D.B. Todd Blvd and Herman Street. With the area being along the smaller side, the homes in the area are not as expensive as other areas in Metro Nashville. The annual income for those living in the area are among the poverty level and the homes are not as up kept as other locations in Metro Nashville as well.

There are a large number of residents within the small community and this causes tension among neighbors as well. The area is very close to Germantown and East Germantown which offer a great area for local robberies to take place. During times of the year, you can find more crime than other times with Summer being the unsafest time of year since most kids are out of school and gangs have nothing better to do.

Nearby to the Elizabeth Park region is the Nashville Farmers Market which is open year round and offers a place to purchase fresh produce as well as numerous other items such as shoes and socks and household supplies. Many of the shoppers enjoy the deep discounts offered at the farmers market. Inside the farmers market and buildings in the park are where you are going to find a number of quality restaurants. These restaurants were just rebuilt after the flood that took place that knocked out many of the businesses downtown in Nashville on May first and second.

Take a trip to the Bicentennial Mall and check out what all the fuss is about since it is not that far away from Elizabeth Park.

"Convenient location"

The area known as Elizabeth Park is bounded by Buchanan Dr., D.B. Todd Jr. Blvd, and Herman. Less than half a square mile, it has more than 1,500 residents.

The lower income area has a median household income of $23,000, and the home values hover around $100,000.Median rent is $511.About 37 percent of the population is below the poverty level.

It is very near Germantown, East Germantown, Salemtown, as well as the Fisk and TSU neighborhoods, all with a great sense of history and tradition. It is a farily unsafe area though with quite a number of robberies and burglaries.

Nearby is the Farmer's Market, the Nashville Jazz Workshop, Metro Center and downtown. While in the area, grab a bite to eat at the Chat & Chew Diner, Momma's Place, Our Wing and Fish, Spoken Word Cafe, Mr. Sinatra's Restaurant Jazz, or a coffe at Kijiji Coffeehouse.
