  • I have been here every time I have been to Nashville. It's just a nice place to hang, especially if it is nice out. Perfect to get away from the busy happenings of Broadway for a bit.  more »
  • The entire park is lovely with the landscaping and architecture. The Parthenon could take hours to really explore and is lovely. The statue of Athena was impressive  more »

  • I love going to Centennial Park. We take our dog there often to walk and socialize. They also have a nice dog park. Centennial is great, because it has really nice walking paths. It also has a number of places to rest. One of my favorite things to do is to sit by the pond and watch the birds. There are beautiful gardens, as well. There’s often events going on, which are typically a lot of fun..
