West Meade Waterfall

Hidden in a shady cove in a hollow in West Meade is the rushing, mighty waterfall after a rain storm—or a soft trickle in the dry summer. It is a place for inspiration.

The waterfall is the headwaters to Richland Creek, feeding directly into Jocelyn Hollow Creek which traverses east into Richland Creek. Behind the waterfall lie dozens of acres of mature forest. The land is home to sensitive flora and fauna, including wildflowers, salamanders, and even a bobcat has been spotted roaming the land.

Our Conservation Story
In 2013, TennGreen purchased the waterfall using funds from the Bob Brown Emergency Land Fund. In 2014, the conservancy lead a fundraising campaign to repay the Emergency Land Fund. In 2015, Metro Nashville took ownership of the property and TennGreen and Metro Nashville dedicated the land.
