The River Plantation neighborhood is a residential mix of condos, town homes, and single-family homes, all of which were constructed between 1972 and 2003. This Tennessee community lies in the heart of Bellevue, a suburb in the southwestern portion of metropolitan Nashville and within Davidson County.
Two main thoroughfares cross the River Plantation neighborhood, General George Patton Road and Sawyer Brown Road. The latter intersects Highway 70 South, which puts the bustling retail district of Bellevue basically around the corner from River Plantation. The entrance to Interstate 40 is only a few traffic lights away, offering easy access to residents who commute to downtown and to other areas of Music City.
The River Plantation community takes part of its name from the Harpeth River that meanders along the length of the neighborhood on the southern side of Sawyer Brown Road. Much of the neighborhood had to be rebuilt after the 2010 Nashville flood.
One of the main attractions of this community is its proximity to various malls, supermarkets, and restaurants. The neighborhood is also close to schools, parks, and recreation. There are small playground parks nearby, as well as the massive Warner Parks. At Edwin and Percy Warner Parks, there are opportunities for picnicking, hiking, and horseback riding. Residents also can bring the family pooch to the dog park section.
