PGAV Destinations has contracted with Premier Parks to provide a master plan for their Nashville Shores Lakeside Resort property. Nashville Shores, which is located just 10 minutes from downtown Nashville on 385 wooded acres on Percy Priest Lake, currently features lodging, lake rentals, a waterpark, marina and Treetop Adventure Park.
The long-range master plan will be focused on enhancing the functionality and guest experience of the property through increasing the number and variety of accommodations, adding additional resort amenities to elevate the resort experience, reviewing the brand identity, and modifying vehicular and pedestrian circulation to tie all resort amenities together.
“Nashville is a growing area for both locals and tourists,” says PGAV VP Jeff Havlik. “Nashville Shores being only 10 minutes from downtown Nashville is in a great position to provide accommodations and some great recreational activities for both the local and tourist groups. It is exciting to be allowed to assist Premier Parks and Nashville Shores in growing the resort and elevating the guest experience.”
Nearly 10 years ago, PGAV Destinations worked with Premier Parks on a master plan to develop the property. Since then, Nashville Shores has seen tremendous growth in all facets of the property. The waterpark has nearly doubled in size with new attractions, retail and concession areas, the lodging program was greatly expanded, a BBQ restaurant was introduced, and significant improvements were made with the pontoon boat rental fleet.
“I have worked with PGAV on many projects through the years,” said Kieran Burke, Premier Parks Chairman, President & CEO. “They have been a terrific partner and resource for the development of Nashville Shores and our other properties. We have seen great growth in the past 10 years, but there is still so much potential. Our vast property is located on a beautiful lake just 10 minutes from the heart of a growing and exciting city that is also a major tourist destination. I am looking forward to collaborating with PGAV again to help make Nashville Shores one of the premier resort properties in the country.”
Nashville Shores Lakeside Resort on the banks of Percy Priest Lake includes lodging options of 31 cabins and 99 RV sites. It is home to Nashville’s biggest waterpark including slides, wave pool, lazy river, pools, lake cruises and Kowabunga Beach. The Treetop Adventure Park aerial adventure course features zip lines, cargo nets, ladders, Tarzan jumps, and more.
“We are excited to work with PGAV again,” said Larry Edgmon, Nashville Shores General Manager. “Their incredible experience and expertise in the attraction industry will be a great asset as we plan for the future. We are looking forward to learning about the potential plans, ideas and developments for Nashville Shores.”
