Quiet get away.

Nice woodsy location in a residential area. Quiet trails to walk edge of lake. A quiet get away if not looking for a lot of excitement.

Was not dog friendly at all. Dogs were not ALLOWED on any trails. Could not run/jog either. Not sure what you're actually allowed to do. Not a good place if you're looking for physical activity.

We visited the park a few times during our visit to Nashville. The park rangers were helpful and nice. we spent many hours there photographing nature. Great sunset and wildlife if you stopped to look. We say deer, tons of birds, squirrels, turtles, fish, duck, etc. etc. One of the trails had a lot of after-work walkers/joggers who were talking...

Radnor Lake is located just outside Nashville and offers very beaufiful landscapes and wildlife. The state park offers some beautiful hiking trails with variation in difficulty. Radnor Lake is the ideal place to escape from the city now and then.

If you love hiking trails & nature this is a great place. I went in the morning & it was so beautiful and peaceful. All I could hear were the birds chirping. It's also a very HUGE state park. This place is great for some good walking & nature seeing

Radnor Lake is a great place for a hike * Well maintained trails * Extremely clean washrooms at the start of the trail * Beautiful park. Really enjoyed walking around the lake. * Huge area for hiking * Busy enough that I felt very safe, but did not feel crowded

Wanting to want to take in a little nature on our trip, we discovered this place. It was overcast and started to rain halfway through our visit. But still very peaceful. Saw several deer, squirrels and even turkeys. Trails were pretty well marked and clear. A little bit of history at the caretaker's home. Would be nice to create a... More

Great hiking trails around the lake. You can leave the cares of the city behind in this close-in piece of wilderness. Somewhat groomed trails retain a rustic feel.

Great get-away in the middle of a city! I love to come walk around the lake when I just need a "breather."
