The accessibility to Radnor Lake makes it the best place to experience nature within the Nashville city limits. You'll see turtles sunbathing on a log, deer munching along the trail and so much more that makes this nature retreat so special.

In my year of living in Nashville, I have visited Radnor no less than 25 times. Every time I am amazed by the natural beauty the park offers. From the giant snapping turtles by the lake to the woodpeckers in the trees to the deer who sometimes use the walking paths to the tourists with fanny packs and cameras --... More

We loved the hike around the lake. The lake was peaceful and offered trails throughout. We parked at the visitors center, as the other parking lot fills up quickly.

Nice little trail to the lake we saw a barn owl a duck with 4 ducklings and along the way back a baby snake that we and 2 other walkers determined it to be a baby rattler, right off the lake next to the road.

An awesome quite place with full of nature. My kids love turtles and birds watching and If you lucky enough you may run into baby box turtles along the bank. If you have been missing nature then head towards Radnor Lake. A must see for nature lovers. Parking is limited so plan accordingly and if travelling with friends or family... More

Perfect place to spend a few hours after arriving early on an afternoon flight: nice walking trails (no running/jogging allowed!), very well maintained and pretty views of the lake. I was traveling with a colleague from Kenya and he really enjoyed the chance to escape the "busy-ness" of the U.S. cities he's more accustomed to seeing. Would have spent a... More

Great walks and hikes, good spot to see some wildlife, get there early on the weekends to beat the crowds and not have to wait for parking.

Due to time constraints we only explored the spillway trail and part of the lake trail. The wildlife was abundant and the stream and lake were beautiful. The weather was perfect. The parking lot was full but we luckily found a space.

Beautiful park just minutes away from downtown Nashville. I saw a Wild Turkey, Snap Turtle, Deer, all sorts of birds, beautiful wildflowers and Dogwood trees. A feast for the senses. Great hiking trails all around the park.
