Storyville Gardens, a new story-driven theme park, is launching in greater Nashville, Tennessee in the Spring of 2025. The plans for the theme park include interactive attractions, shows, rides, live entertainment, shops, themed hotels, and restaurants.

Storyville Gardens is divided into “the four corners of the world” – Africa, Asia, Europe, and America. Each geographic area features local stories in an effort to improve literacy among kids as they are immersed in the stories.

Storyville Gardens Creators

The theme park’s creators are Elde and DeLisa Guerrier, a husband and wife team who run a real estate development and investment company, Guerrier Development. They say they are inspired by the need for more family entertainment in Nashville.

“Nashville and the surrounding counties are missing family-friendly entertainment options for our children,” says DeLisa Guerrier. “Storyville Gardens will provide that option while also helping parents and caregivers instill a love of reading in their children.”

Elde and DeLisa hope that the park helps kids develop a love for reading outside of the park. They want the park to “awaken the imagination” of both kids and adults.

The designers for Storyville Gardens are Storyland Studios a creative theme park and attraction design company with many former Walt Disney Imagineers on staff.

Nashville has been without a theme park since Opryland USA closed in 1997. The initial cost of Storyville Gardens is expected to be $300 million on a site of 100+ acres. Construction is slated to start in 2022 at a site to be named by the end of the year.
