Centennial Park Conservancy (formerly The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park) is a for-purpose 501(c)(3) not-for-profit profit organization. Although they are a separately chartered organization, Centennial Park Conservancy was organized with the cooperation of the Metro Parks and Recreation Department.
The organization began in 1982 as the Athena Fund when nickels and dimes were collected by school children and adult visitors to pay for the creation of the statue Athena inside the Parthenon. Upon completion of this project in 1990, they became Parthenon Patrons. In 2005, their Board of Directors voted to expand the mission and scope of their work to include Centennial Park, and in 2009 the organization was remanded The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park. In 2019, a shorted and easier to recall name, Centennial Park Conservancy, was introduced. The Parthenon was listed on National Register of Historic Places in 1972, and Centennial Park has been listed since 2008.
Centennial Park Conservancy funds and presents a variety of enriching programs in the Parthenon and Centennial Park that make a widespread imprint on the Nashville community and their visitors.
