Reviews for Nashville Municipal (T) Dock
Second best location, but fairly secure, 2016-09-19
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (2870)

The West docks have no security gate, but it saves you 15 minutes and a lot of steps to all the action downtown. The power pedestals here on the East side were fairly new and tripped when I hooked up. I had to make a temporary change on the boat to be able to get power. There is a lot of loud music that can come from the Event Center right above you, or the park. Our boat was thumping with the deep bass of some kind of music one night. But, it is Music City, so deal with it. If I could do it over, I would try for the West side. Barge wakes were not that bad, but we had one jerk in a larger runabout wake us badly.

Nashville Municipal Docks East Bank, 2016-09-14
Captain: , Wilmington,NC (320)

Nashville has two long transient docks on each side of the Cumberland River at MM 191. I stayed on the east bank (RDB, Titan football stadium side) because it is gated with a 4 digit code. The other side is more convenient to town but has less security. The area seems okay but there are homeless in Nashville. The east bank docks are relatively new (2015) and are solid, wide and with good cleats, power, water and trash barrels. There is no wake protection but it is not much of an issue because the occasional barge is typically moving slowly here. It is about a 10 minute walk over the pedestrian bridge to the other side. As others have said, try to dock as far from the pedestrian bridge as possible (it goes over the midpoint of the dock) because some people are jerks and can throw things from the bridge. I did witness one person throwing his breakfast trash from the bridge into the river and was glad my boat was not underneath. The location is very convenient to see the different Nashville sites - many within walking distance and others a reasonable cab or uber ride away.

Hazard in the middle of the dock about 15 feet out that is less than 3 feet deep, 2016-09-14
Captain: , N. Myrtle Beach (343)

We draw 5 feet and are currently stuck on structural piece of stone or metal that is less than 4 feet under the water. It is right in the middle of the dock even with the downstream edge of the bridge support. This is a serious hazard. Do not get within 30 feet of the center of the dock.

A landing at LP Field, across the walking bridge from downtown, 2014-02-28
Captain: , Plantation Yacht Harbor, Islamorada, Fla. Keys (4686)

Update 2/14: New construction will make this side of the river a more attractive venue for crusiers and river users. On the the Upper Park, construction will remove an existing asphalt road and creates a new oval shaped green park space that can be enjoyed for multiple uses such as free play, temporary athletic fields, special events, tailgating and festivals. A crushed stone plaza with over 60 new shade trees will be planted providing moveable chairs and table for seating and relaxing. Pedestrian and bike pathways will surrounding the park and creating and entrance connection to the NABRICO building, Cumberland Park and the East Bank greenway and down to the water. The Lower Park will bea grass park area on the river bank. It will eliminate the steep slope and create a new park area for public use with a flatter gentler sloped park that opens up new space for river access, for rest, relaxation, picnics and events. Bench seating, new trees for shade, picnic areas and meadow gardens and views of downtown, and can be used as an informal spectator area for downtown special events viewing. The water%u2019s edge will be stabilized with an armor mat %u201Cbeach%u201D suitable for launching kayaks and canoes or dipping your toes in the water. The new slope and mat will create one of the only areas within the riverfront where the public can get access to the river directly and safely. The concrete mat and moorings create a place where temporary docking for crew regatta events and crew team races could occur. Kayakers, crew teams and canoers can all easily walk their boats down the new slope and put in directly off the mat into the water. A new concrete docking and loading plaza will be put in next to the Ghost Ballet art work. The riverboat landing and moorings creates a new reinforced docking location for the General Jackson, the Music City Queen or other larger boats to dock safely to load and unload passengers. A new plaza area will be created underneath the Ghost Ballet art structure. The existing east bank docks below the NABRICO building and Cumberland Park will be rehabbed, a new gangway is added and electrical power and water pedestals are brought to the dock for boaters and public use.

This landing is primarily for access to the stadium - there is no electricty or water. Overnight docking is officially discouraged, but can be done in a pinch. See the description of the Courtesy Dock (A) for an idea of what awaits the visitor across the Shebly Avenue Pedistrian Bridge at the top of the ramp, as well as restrictions on use of either landing during certian times and events.

Construction has started on a public water park, and renovation of a historic building at the top of the ramp. Expected completion is early summer 2012.
