  • I have always liked this place. If you are visiting it is a cool place to stop for some photos and a walk. It is also next to the farmers market, which is also a cool place to check out and grab some....  more »
  • Nice place to walk around and see the view of the city. Looks like a place pre covid where they would have concerts. Plenty of photo opportunities.  more »

  • Absolutely an awesome part to go to. Grateful running and any type of exercising including dog walking or an afternoon stroll in the park. The landscape is very manicured allows you to walk through nature. The amphitheater has a unique view of the State Capitol building where where you can see the incline of the grass with Nashville's tallest buildings in background. One unique feature is it has columns at the end of the park that ring a bell every hour. There's always events going on at the park. Perfectly located in between the Nashville Sounds stadium and the Farmers market.
  • I absolutely love this park. It’s just such a beautiful way to highlight what makes Tennessee so unique. The wall detailing the state’s history and the street showcasing each county are both amazing, but the giant marble globe inside a fountain is just stunning. Equally fun is standing in the middle of the columns and hearing your own voice in surround. Definitely worth setting aside an hour to explore.
