Explore inside this full-scale reproduction, then visit the art center for some more modern creative works. You can walk or jog the short trail or play volleyball in another area. You'll find plenty of spots for relaxing, such as the sunken garden. If you need to catch up with friends or family, the park features free Wi-Fi access.

  • Great place for individuals or fun family outing. Bike rentals are an added bonus. Love the historical markers throughout the park. Beautiful blossoms to look during walks or runs.
  • The park was great! We had a great time and really enjoyed all this park had to offer. There was a lot of homeless people but they were mostly friendly. Parking was kinda terrible. Bathrooms were clean and the Parthenon was so cool!!
  • I love this place! The Parthenon is amazing! It has a ton of history and lots of things to see. Love the flowers in the spring and the grounds are very well kept. The place is centrally located in Nashville and has plenty of parking and easy to get to, get in, and get out...
  • Lots of room and things to see. Great jogging and walking park. Loved it here!
  • Nice park with lots of space. Good place to walk your dog or take a new puppy to train. Very popular on the weekends, though. Filled with tourists!
