Riverfront Park Reviews & Ratings
One of the neatest urban area parks-complete with a splash pad and rock wall. The old steel bridge is a walking bridge and there are great trails all around to get there by bike.
Great Place to Run, enjoy the views, interact with the homeless; appreciate the abundance we have and what we can give while passing them. I just feel bad that it interrupts the homeless living experience. So I try and tip-toe and be respectful of their space; its the only living quarters they have. Joggers like Devin, ruin that experience for them.
Best snack of Nashville. July4 best fireworks venue. Party on lower Broadway
It's right in the downtown area. The river is used as a stage for CMA music fest. The arts. It's just an all together nice place to sit and watch the barges go up and down the Cumberland river and meet and greet. 😊
It has changed over the years but is fun walkable area with many photo opportunities. This has been a great place to get some fresh air and enjoy the boats coming up and down the river.
