If you want to enjoy one of the best ways to stay healthy, get some sun and hang out with family and friends than any of the almost 100 parks in Nashville are a great way to do just that. Not only does Nashville have lots of parks for you to spend time in but they're some of the most beautiful in the country, an added benefit of Nashville being located that little bit further south in the US.
The Metro Board of Parks and Recreation in Nashville take their job very seriously and the fact that 3% of the entire county is dedicated to parks and greenways is proof of that. In total the Board manages more than 10,000 acres of land which includes over 12 miles of dedicated hiking trails, 10 miles of trails for equines and their owners and of course over 20 miles of the most scenic roads you could wish for.
Here are just some of our favorite parks in and around Nashville:
Percy Warner Park
This expansive park attracts more than 50,000 visitors every single year and with a mixture of hiking trails, running trails, picnic areas, horse trails and even golf courses here those visitor numbers should come as no surprise. This sanctuary of peace and relaxation is just a short drive from downtown and is an ideal place to enjoy a day out with your entire family.
Located beside the Cumberland River in east Nashville this beautiful park is located in one of the more historic parts of the city. There's also a small golf course here and a dedicated dog park too - so your canine friends can get out and have some fun with you.
This large park is just west of downtown Nashville and is instantly recognizable because of the massive Greek Parthenon located here. In this 132-acre park you'll find the Parthenon we just mentioned, Lake Watauga and of course an amphitheater too. Not the biggest park in the city but definitely one of the more popular.
