you can drive up to Ft. Granger or take a walk from Pinkerton Park. It's a cool part of History and the battle's that occured in Franklin. Great for kids to see.

Not much here to see in the sense that there are no ruins or buildings - yet it is easy to get an idea of what it was once like thanks to the several informational boards in addition the the number you can dial on your phone to hear a recording about the location. Beautiful area.

The park wasn't what I expected it to be. It is essentially just a large field with numerous paths to who knows where. It connects to the other park that's developed close by. It's neat but I probably won't go back.

I didn't really know what to expect here and was pleasantly surprised. It is a well maintained and well interpreted historic site featuring a remarkably preserved Civil War fortification. It has some nice views of the surrounding countryside, and is a short hike from the river. A free outdoor attraction, it is definitely worth a quick visit.

nice little park easy access for wheel chair. Overall earth works were very defined and some places that gave you some history. this place could have displayed much more information on the fort and more detail info on its role in the battle and in defending the area.

We drove out to Fort Grainger and found nothing basically but a bunch of wooden ramps to walked all over that lead to nowhere. Saw a model in a downtown Franklin store window of what the fort looked like in its day and it looked nothing like ramps of 2X4's that are there today. Did not even see a cannon... More

A quick Civil War site to tour. Nice view of the area but bring your walking shoes if you want to trek down to the park. The hill is quite steep. You can also start at the park and walk over the bridge up to the Fort. Nice walking park and playground for the kids. Clean and nicely heated bathroom!

We came early the day we visited and were glad that we did. Parked in the lot for the local park and walked to the fort on a well worn trail. You can also get to it by car, just follow the signs in town. This is a very well preserved earthenwork fort and they have lots of signage and... More

What a great piece of history to stumble upon! At Fort Granger there is open space "park" area (no facilities), lookouts, beautiful trenches, and nearby trails. To walk the trenches that remain, dug by Civil War soldiers, is sobering. The beautiful landscape was saved just in time for preservation, as the area around it has grown. There are a few... More

Fort Granger is one of my favorite places to take visiting families with children. With a comfortable hike up the path that runs behind Pinkerton Park, guests get a little exercise out among the trees, and once at the top enjoy a little history lesson and interesting views of Franklin too. With no tickets to purchase, the timing is all... More
