This is large park with a recent addition of more than 80 acres of "old-growth" forest (but that is not yet open to the public). There are driving routes and hiking trails. Some areas are developed (golf course, ball fields, etc) but most is just middle Tennessee hills as they were once, natural and and relatively untouched by man. The management stays very light touch; trails and roads are kept open but the rest is allowed to follow its own path, except for occasional organized forays to clear "invaders", non-native plants such as vinca. One has the feeling of seeing this area as it was before it was settled. An ice storm some years ago felled many trees. Only those that blocked access were dealt with. So the process of loss and decay, growth and regrowth is interesting to observe over time. Not crowded, very peaceful, definitely worth a visit.
