Bellevue is a large, unincorporated community situated on the western edge of Davidson County. Four decades ago, it was a small area that served the needs of the surrounding farming communities. Now it sports many terrific restaurants, several places to hike, physical activities for the kids, and some beautiful new neighborhoods.
There are many things to love about Bellevue, including the nearby Percy Warner Dog Park, the Loveless Cafe, and Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre. If you love beautiful greenery in a pastoral setting, Cheekwood Art & Gardens is the perfect place to see some beautiful landscaping and a world class art gallery. In this West Nashville community, there is much to see and explore. You will love living here!
If it’s physical activity you want, there are a plethora of places to hike. Nearby Edwin & Percy Warner Parks are great places to get outdoors. Along with hiking trails, they also have bike trails that will keep you active. If you want to encourage your children to get active, Harpeth Youth Soccer Association (HYSA) is one of the most popular soccer leagues in the mid-state. With several fields to work with, they have leagues to fit any age group. If your child prefers football or baseball, there are leagues for those sports as well.
The Bellevue area hosts several events throughout the year. The Iroquois Steeplechase is an annual horse event that brings out some of the most beautiful sights and sounds in the mid-state. The Full Moon Pickin’ Party is held next door to the Steeplechase grounds, and is the site for some of the best bluegrass pickin’ around. All in a peaceful, outdoor setting. It is put on by the Friends of Warner Parks one Friday a month from May through October. The annual Bellevue Community Picnic is another popular area event that encourages everyone to come out and enjoy food, fun, and friends.
If you want to live in an area that has a rural feel, but is still close to the city’s amenities, then Bellevue is the community for you!
