One of the advantages many Nashville residents enjoy most are the many parks and green spaces found throughout the city. This provides a great way to get some sun, enjoy time with family and stay healthy. With nearly 100 parks spread throughout Nashville, you won't have to travel far to find a great place to soak up some sun. Nashville is even home to some of the most beautiful parks found in the entire country.
Residents also gain access to over 12 miles of hiking trails, 20 miles of some of the best scenic roads and 10 miles of equine trails. The Metro Board of Parks and Recreation manages over 10,000 acres and they take their job seriously. Here's a short list of some of the top parks in the area.

Centennial Park

Found west of downtown, this large park provides 132 acres of space. It features a massive Greek Parthenon, Lake Watauga and an amphitheater. It's not the largest park in the area, but it is one of the most popular you'll find in Nashville.

Percy Warner Park

A mixture of running trails, picnic areas, hiking trails, horse trails and golf courses attract over 50,000 annual visitors. Enjoy the short drive from downtown Nashville leading you to a great place to enjoy time with the family, a peaceful day away from the city or one of many activities offers at this park.

Shelby Park

Found in a very historic part of the city, this park features a small golf course, dedicated dog park and more. It's found near Cumberland River and many residents enjoy time with their dogs at this park. 

These are just three of the more popular parks found throughout Nashville, which residents love. There are many more and as a resident of Nashville, you'll enjoy spending time discovering all the parks within your specific area of the city.
