I grew up very near Radnor Lake and have enjoyed the state park for many many years. This is a natural haven in the suburbs of Nashville. There are well-maintained hiking trails (walking only, no running) and a road (you can run on the road) that goes through the park. The wildflowers in spring are gorgeous. The wildlife in all...

One of the greatest places to go for a stroll or do some semi-serious hiking. The lake is magnificent at all seasons.

A great place to walk, jog, bike and enjoy nature at it's best. See ducks, frogs, turtles, deer, birds and other wild life as you stroll. We even had an encounter with a 6 foot rattlesnake crossing peacefully across the parking lot.

Radnor Lake is locally known as an excellent bird watching spot. Paths around the lake are well maintained.

nice park around a lake. Nothing spectacular, but it is nice park to have in a big city. Mainly locals use it to do their walkings for exercise.

Great park because it is very scenic, with a manmade lake, hills, wildlife and it is in the heart of the city but it feels like "a whole different world." You forget the city part and just enjoy the wonderful trails. One drawback, not enough parking!

Radnor Lake is a great place to go if you want a hike or want to get away for a bit without driving far and I think every time I've been I've seen at least one deer. It can get very crowded on Saturdays and unless you are there early, your best best is to use the Granny White entrance.

It was really nice and peaceful here. There are a few different hiking trails that you can go on depending on your activity level. We walked along the lake and it was really nice and calming. And so close to downtown Nashville.
