We came in the afternoon so missed the museum being open. The outside is neat to see. The area is being revamped so a lot of construction now, but there is small lake and grass area to walk around. Peaceful spot away from downtown.

We were there for game day at Vandy. It was fun to see all the football fans there. The lake is beautiful and the park is well maintained, with nice lawns and flower gardens. A GREAT place to visit.

Unfortunately, we came too late, and the museum was already closed. Nevertheless, an attractive building and the park is very relaxing. We walked around the pond and checked about fauna and flora. Many people biking and jogging there. Many benches to sit down and relax.

I went to Vanderbilt in 1978 and in my four years always loved walking across Broadway to Centennial Park. You can pretend you are at the Parthenon in Athens! Right now seems to be a bit under construction but we all enjoyed walking through the...More

Well, why don't you save $15,000 and stay in Nashville and not spend $15,000 going to Greece to see the Parthenon there that is falling apart. Also, Athena is in Nashville! WOO!! HOO!!!

A nice section of town to see historical sites and relax. The Parthenon is a great place to visit. The general area could use some clean up and additions.

We saw a free concert in the park and enjoyed it immensely. High quality entertainment, delicious food truck food and surprisingly high quality adult and non-alcoholic beverages readily available without long lines. Mosquitos were not an issue either.
