  • This park is huge and all of the Tennessee history was crazy from stone age to now and please don't miss the Towers chiming or the Farmer's Market.

  • This is a nice =, small, non-treed park with a great view of the capital. The staff is nice, and it's got great souvenirs. Parking is not great, at all, but that's true of most of downtown...

  • One of the most beautiful places in town! Lots of trees, lots of green space, a carillon, wat memorial and even a farmers market! After the traffic and noise of downtown, this was a terrific relaxing site. Loved the giant rotating globe in the war memorial! Kids were invariably drawn to reach out and touch it. As it rotated in the fountain water, the continents came into view and the water drained off. It was an amazing thing to watch! Walking down the sidewalk you can view historic moments and lots of names of people who impacted the city, state and country. Loved the benches and open areas.
  • Really nice park to walk through. Great history along the way. Lots of people walking with families and dogs. You have the Nashville Farmers market is beside it and the state museum is next to it. You can get your state park passport stamp inside the visitor center. Ranger was really nice to talk to.
