A great place to get a view above Franklin and a great place to picnic or go for a walk in a meadowed wood. It will disappoint those looking for a fully restored and staffed fort. All that's here are the earthworks a wooden walkway...More

Interesting part of Civil War history but not very well maintained. Very difficult to read historical markers and overgrown which is too bad. Newer walkways are being put in.

make no mistake, this is a GREAT Civil War site! Preserved Union fort on the north end of Franklin-so much is still there to see! Great to step back in time. There is a wonderful walk across the river to get to the park-but-it is...More

When we visited, there was only a single swath mowed connecting some of the markers. Did not see the open fields shown in some of the other pictures which others have posted. This was not a very interesting site.

Walking back to Ft Granger is like a mini get-away from the hustle and bustle. Never crowded, nice to visit in winter also when less leaves on the trees. Good Saturday activity or summertime if you need something to do with the kids.

If you are looking for a place to burn off energy along with your children and learn some history then look no further. This little gem has two good-sized playgrounds and an exercise trail. You can also read up on local history via the signs.

Located in a major suburb, this civil war site is pretty well preserved. You can still see the earthworks and the views provide clear evidence of why this location was chosen. Can be difficult to get there, especially from Pinkerton Park.

It's a good place to walk around and read about the history, but I definitely would make it a day trip. If you're in town and like history, great place. You can also walk down to the park and it's close to downtown Franklin!
