Inscription.  Originally known as Chestnut Street Park, land for this South Nashville park was purchased in 1913. That same year, two daughters of Parks Commission chairman Robert M. Dudley — Louise and Rebecca — died in a train accident in Iowa. The park was renamed in their memory in 1914. Baseball fields and a swimming pool were added in 1920, and the Works Progress Administration built a community center in the 1930s. The park often hosted weekly concerts and movie nights in addition to sports.
