This is a great park to Hike. Trails are great with lot of animals of all kinds. I tend to go early to avoid the crowds, which can be quite a lot. One of the best nature places in town.

I love to walk here anytime that I can. A nice oasis in the city, and wonderful place to relax when city stresses become too much.

We just returned from Nashville a d visited Radnor Lake again. It is such a lovely place to go for a walk and get some fresh air. People who go there are friendly as well and i recommend it highly. At the moment the trees are in full autumnal colour and their reflections in the water are so beautiful. We... More

This is a well marked natural path and lake to enjoy a nice casual walk or more of a workout on the difficult path. It could take an hour or two depending on the route you choose. Plenty of benches to sit down and relax along the way. It is good for couples and families.

We stopped at Radnor Lake to get some fresh air and do something different while in Nashville. The parking off of Otter Creek is awful. We spent 20 minutes waiting in a line of cars to get a parking spot. I'm not sure if there is parking on the other side but if there is - take it! The main... More

This hike is a hidden gem. As other reviewers have stated the parking is limited but don't let this stop you from exploring the lake and trails. If at all possible go during the week to avoid the crowds. There is an easy strolling trail of about two miles around the lake and through beautiful woods. You can also choose... More

Right in Brentwood! This is such a wonderful park. So much to do and see. There are all degrees of hiking trails to venture on to. Every season is beautiful in this park. Go and explore, you will love it!

My husband and I have taken friends to this park - the grounds are beautiful, and it's the only hiking park I know of in the greater Nashville area that has strenuous trails. I would recommend Radnor Lake to anyone who wants to go for a hike. Parking, however, is horrible... it's too popular of a place!

Not as nice as the Warner Parks. Skip Radnor and go to the Warner Parks. The scenery and trails are much better at the Warner Parks.

This little park is nice, but needs a lot more parking. There is an approximately two mile walk around a lake, The entrance to the park is unmarked. In fact, the road only says "Dead End" and no mention of the existance of the park when entered from the east side of the park. We were able to see a... More
