  • It is free and right beside the farmer's market and the state museum. The bells play several songs on the hour and very nice to be there when they do. There is a large map of Tennessee in granite...

  • If you live in or near Nashville, this is a great place to come and hang out. The food court has a good variety of cuisines for a fair price, the mall and memorials are really nice and I love to hear the carillon bells being played, it is one of my favourite parts of Bicentennial. The farmer's market is also great when it's active. Craftsmen and trade from all over Tennessee and even Kentucky. I love buying pottery from small business local to the area.
  • Very nice and beautiful park with amazing monuments to explore and the cute farmers market next ti it! It was our first trip to Nashville and this park was among the first places we visited and walked around! The lovely pigeons around the pond made it even more beautiful! Would visit the park again on our next trip to this beautiful city!
