Metro Nashville’s Socket presents “Walking Tour of Metro’s Center of Responsible Energy (CORE) & West Riverfront Park”. Join us for an insider tour of two of the city’s sustainability gems. Visit the Department of General Services’ energy control center, where the energy manager will explain the city’s automated systems to control HVAC, temperature, lighting, and water for nearly 100 city buildings. Then, after a short, 0.5 mile walk to West Riverfront Park, participants will be rewarded by a tour of the sustainability features of this iconic green space. From geothermal heating and cooling to more than a mile of trails to a tree tour with 36 species, learn how this park was built with sustainability in mind. A team member from site design firm Hawkins Partners will be leading the tour.

Socket is Metro Government of Nashville & Davidson County's sustainability outreach program brought to you by the Department of General Services (DGS). For more information about the city’s sustainability initiatives, visit us at

This first-of-its-kind-in-Nashville organization is designed to "bridge the gap" between thinking and doing and, in the process, move sustainability from concept to daily reality for an increasing number of citizens.

Urban Green Lab is Team Green Adventure's official Engage Green Workshop Series partner and workshop co-host.
