New to Nashville? Visit this park. Near downtown and midtown. Very close to all kinds of restaurants. You can take a stroll there, feed the ducks on the small lake, visit Parthenon, walk around, or simply just sit and relax.

Walk all around and read about the history of Tennessee. I thought I knew a lot but still learned so much. The design is very creative! Whoever designed this park is a genius.

Many people love seeing all of the aspects of Tennessee history and the unique monuments found at our park. Perhaps next time you can ask a ranger to show you what you might have missed.
