There are a lot of Nashville Parks. Some of the city parks are where festivals and fairs are held. Others are for the enjoyment of the great outdoors.
Trails are set up in these parks for nature walks. A lot of them will be a mile or two. There are picnic tables for outdoor meals and gathering of friends. Some of the parks are theme based such as water or history. Others are community based with ballparks, tennis courts and playgrounds.
It is my desire to make available the information about Nashville parks in and around the Nashville area. These parks will include Nashville State Parks, Nashville Amusement Parks, and Nashville Waterparks for several miles in all directions.
