My family calls this the "shady park" but not because it's unsafe. It's almost fully shaded and preferred on hot summer days. Two full playgrounds and a large natural area to entertain the kids.

This park is so beautiful. The community center has a work out facility that costs $3/day and is run by amazing, kind people. Lots to enjoy on the playground for children and gorgeous trees for all!

Beautiful park filled with people running, relaxing, frisbee, swings, hammocks, sunbathing, and a community center that's second to none.

Two Rivers Park

Part of the the Nashville Greenway system with over 80 miles of bike and walking trails. Also a disc golf course, skate park and wave pool here. They have Bike Rentals too.

Miles of bikeway/walkway, public skatepark, disc golf and more. Cool bridge across Cumberland River to see the General Jackson showboat.

This is my go to Disc Golf course it's pretty open but can be a bit tricky to find the next hole your first time there. The walking and bike trails here are beautiful and one goes over the river.

Located in northwest Nashville, this wild and rugged land is a unique treasure in Nashville’s park system and features a Highland Rim forest type, unique plant associations and species, and a rugge... read more

These trails give us a choice of easy to moderate levels of exertion. Several species of flora on the "endangered list" can be seen. Picnic beside the running creekside tail. Nashville loves parks.

Beaman is the perfect place to go for a hike because it isn't overcrowded like Radnor Lake. You'll feel totally removed from the Nashville city life.

Long paved loop around a beautiful lake; hiking trails (no dogs or running allowed on wood trails)

A beautiful lake with a trail all the way around. Great for some peace and quiet while getting some exercise. Beautiful spots to sit and take in the view.

Massively popular hiking trails around beautiful Radnor Lake, in the woods with tons of wildlife: deer, wild turkeys, even otters, if you're lucky.
