  • Great walking and jogging park for individuals and families. Children and pets friendly. Plenty of shades and trees. Beautiful memorial sites. There is also a huge food court that sells variety of choices. Parking is free and there's always plenty of spots.

  • Nice place to stroll downtown and read about the history of Tennessee. Fascinating! The visitors center was closed they're only open Monday through Friday 8 or 8:30 til 4:30 but the ranger on duty still stamped my book for me.

  • Few steps away from the farmers market, where we bought our lunch & ice cream. Walk over to the park with the ice cream because these things were to big to finish, finally just toss the cone because I was just to full. The park was beautiful, I could see my boys liking this place, I jumped when the train came passing over Us, looking over to the capital, seeing it was Up hill we save that till another time, family friendly place, a spash pad for the kids & adults saw them enjoying there time, will be back with the family to Nashville & definitely be stop by here. :)

  • Wonderful place for history and great views. A wonderful walk for dogs, kids, the S/O, or even a nice stroll by yourself. Being so close to downtown, definitely worth a visit! (Also a wondering Pokemon Go spot!)

  • I just through Bicentennial Park every day at lunch. It is a wonderful place. I see couples walking, families having picnics, kids playing in the fountains. It's adjacent to the capital, the farmers market, and several museums and historical sites. It is the perfect place to start exploring Nashville or just relax for the afternoon.
