NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Mayor Karl Dean unveiled the final design and new renderings of the West Riverfront Park Monday.

It’s an 11 acre civic park on the site of the former Thermal Transfer Plant.

The park will include more than one mile of multi-use greenway trails, Nashville's first downtown dog park, ornamental gardens, a 1.5 acre event lawn called The Green and an amphitheater.

Construction on the park began earlier this year.

This is the first phase of redevelopment for the West Riverfront Park.

The master plan involves transforming 18 acres along the west side of the Cumberland River from Church Street to Korean Veterans Boulevard into a downtown park.

The Metro Council approved about $35 million in three prior capital spending plans for riverfront redevelopment on the west bank.

West Riverfront Park is slated to open in the summer of 2015.
