Visiting from Florida. We loved this park. Easy long hike around the lake. We saw many kinds of birds including an eagle, cardinals, and wood ducks. Close encounter with 3 deer and a chipmunk. All free.

Such a beautiful and peaceful place. The lake route is in very good condition. There could’ve been better signs in some places but in general a very good experience.

Radnor Lake State Park has been one of our favorite Nashville spots for decades, including when we were in college to study and relax as well. The park offers good trails, most of which are easy to hike/walk. We always see wildlife there, even when temperatures are near freezing! We highly recommend Radnor Lake for visitors of all ages.

We loved our hike here. Huge loop around the lake, well marked, and we saw some deer while we were there. Nice facility with video about the local birds which was fun to watch. I would come back for sure.

Enjoyed a great hike around Radnor Lake on Sunday morning. It wasn't too crowded at 10 am. Nice trails and scenery.

It was gorgeous! Mornings or Evenings are the best time to go as the sun cuts through the trees, it was ethereal! Loved it and would go back again!

There are so many trails/lakes in Nashville, but this one is my favorite! Never too crowded either. Lots of trails to do too!

My family and me took a nice walk around the lake. There were so many deer to see it was unbelievable. For an out of shape guy, the 3+ mile walk was fine. The parking was no problem when I went but there weren't too many spots on one of the two lots. The lake was green color when I went but still a hike around any lake is good enough for me.

My brother, a Nashville native who loves wildlife photography suggested we go here. There were animals everywhere including deer right off the trail, turkeys, herons, cormorants. Trail is super accessible and kids definitely won’t get bored
