This is a wonderful place to come to for a walk and for a great view of the Capitol. The columns represent the 50 states. It is safe for families and a very peaceful retreat from Broadway.

We loved how creatively this park was planned and executed. The historical markers share important, often little-known, information displayed in a very artistic way. The little one enjoyed the water sprinklers, and we enjoyed watching her jump around in them.

Nice state park right near the capital. Can really learn some Tennessee history and overall nice to walk around. Farmer's Market is nearby too. Generally not a lot to do but nice to make it part of a Nashville visit.
