Beautiful little place that we used to visit often. The tornado of March, 2020, has destroyed it. All the huge trees are gone. It will take a generation for it to return to its once fairyland grace. Sad.

I was staying with friends in East Nashville in the Lockeland Springs neighborhood and they showed me this wonderful park hidden away. The community and parks people have really upgraded this park so that you can now see the remains of the old bottling works for the springs. I attached a pic of one of the descriptive signs in the park that explains the history. It's a pleasant hike along the springs to the remains; a nice shady, slightly cooler area in the summer. Parking is on the street so be mindful and courteous of the homeowners there. There is no charge. A real gem in the city to explore. Stop by and check it out.

This place was a magical forest, home to fairies and the oldest water bottling company around. It look like they went out of business a century or so ago. But the fairies remain. We saw their decorations on the trees and a small fairy home at the base of a tree that was probably related to grandmother willow.

It does rain here. Just wanted to warn you about that.
cool spot.

No fairy villages were spotted but plenty of litter to be carted away. The birds and I were the only visitors this wintry Tuesday.

Lovely historic natural spring in the heart of Lockeland Springs. Worth a walk through and visit. Some historical signs which go over the history of the park.

If you don't want to slip and slide along the wet, muddy trails, I would go when it was dry. I would also go when the weather is cooler and the snakes (it's a perfect place for snakes), mosquitoes, and biting thingies were gone.

The park is in a neighborhood and there is really only one small dirt area to pull off the road. If that is taken, please be as courteous as you can to the neighbors when you park and don't block the road or driveways.

It's a 3 acre park of wooded wetlands with many springs where a former bottling company for spring water stood. There are dirt trails throughout the park and people have even been decorating certain areas with fairy villages, art, crafts and just about anything you can think of. I had seen pictures before we went so we stopped to buy a few bags of colored glass rocks to add some shine and sparkle to the fairylands.

Some areas have been cleared but I'm not sure what they are planning. If you try to cross the creek be careful because the rocks are slick. There are also roots on the dirt trails that are easy to trip on. I even found the wood bridges to be on the slick side. If I'm ever in the area again I plan to paint some art on smooth river rocks to lay around.
