Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park Reviews & Ratings
Absolutely an awesome part to go to. Grateful running and any type of exercising including dog walking or an afternoon stroll in the park. The landscape is very manicured allows you to walk through nature. The amphitheater has a unique view of the State Capitol building where where you can see the incline of the grass with Nashville's tallest buildings in background. One unique feature is it has columns at the end of the park that ring a bell every hour. There's always events going on at the park. Perfectly located in between the Nashville Sounds stadium and the Farmers market.
I absolutely love this park. It’s just such a beautiful way to highlight what makes Tennessee so unique. The wall detailing the state’s history and the street showcasing each county are both amazing, but the giant marble globe inside a fountain is just stunning. Equally fun is standing in the middle of the columns and hearing your own voice in surround. Definitely worth setting aside an hour to explore.
The park itself has many fun aspects to it...a timeline statue piece with fountains...a amphitheater with giant steps of grass..place to sit and a big fun market place indoors off to the back of the farmers market! It's great big area to chase ur kids around in the beautiful fall weather! And as always pet friendly in all the mentioned areas
Wonderful place to visit and see the rich history of all 95 counties of Tennessee. The Farmers Market gives you a plethora of selection of local handmade vegetables and fruits to crafts. Inside, the air conditioner or heat is a relief to the outer elements and you have a wide selection of restaurants to choose from and a huge food court to eat and enjoy the view
Really nice place to stop is you're on a long trip. We walked around and saw the memorials. There's also a farmers market right by that has a bathroom and pop up restaurants. Plenty of free parking
