Theme park proposal expected for fairgrounds master plan

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A resolution involving a Nashville theme park is expected to be introducedto the Metro Board of Fair Commissioners on Tuesday night.

Metro Councilman Bruce Stanley wants to include a theme park concept in thefairground's master plan.

Last month Stanley withdrew a bill that would have required the fair boardto get bids for the project.

Despite that bill's withdrawal, Stanley still believes the 117 acre sitewould be the ideal location for an amusement park similar to Opryland.

In his bill, Stanley suggests a theme park would bring more revenue to thecity, create jobs, and help boost the city's tourism industry.
