This is probably my favorite park in the nashville area. Lots of hiking trails for all levels of fitness, abundant wildlife. I would say if you go during the summer to get there early in the mornings because it is very popular and parking can be limited.

I have only been to Radnor lake once but I would definitely go back. It is a small lake and nature sanctuary in the middle of south Nashville. We took a long hike circling the lake and spent about 1 1/2 hours feeling lost in the middle of the city. Definitely experience!

I visited Radnor Lake for the day last summer and it was beautiful. You can drive right into the State Park and park close to lake. There's any easy path that follows the lake around that takes about an hour to walk (at a leisurely pace!) A great dip into the countryside and only 20-25 minutes from Nashville. The views... More

Lovely park, great for a walk, especially in the fall. QUIET usually. No bikes allowed, wildlife is all over the place. Not uncommon to see deer, turkeys, tons of squirrels and chipmunks.

Great place to take your family or, just go for a walk by yourself. Lots of wildlife and scenery!! Some of the trails are easy and some are hard; so you get to pick. The place is clean.

This is a beautiful, well kept park. There are great walking or running paths. The view of the lake is beautiful and very calming. A great place to visit to unwind while traveling.

Radnor is a peaceful sanctuary tucked away in the middle of Brentwood Tn. We arrived at about 5:00 pm on a Monday for this hike. We entered from Granny White Pike/Otter Creek Road. There are no signs for Radnor on Granny White Pike. Turn where Otter Creek Road intersects Granny White and proceed to the parking lot. There are hiking... More

Nice park, but NO DOGS ALLOWED! Our poor little Rosie was soooo disappointed that we had to leave her in the car for our quick run.
