I have enjoyed the many times I've gone to Radnor lake to walk around and see the wildlife. In the springtime it's hard to go and not see any turtles. I would still recommend this park to someone new to hiking/nature walks, but not to anyone experienced or looking for something intense. There is one main trail around the lake... More

Been to this place multiple times. Always so beautiful in the Spring and Fall months. Whether it's a walk by yourself to get some peace and quiet, or a romantic walk with your significant other - this place is a 'go to' for many people, whether it's runners or walkers, to get away from the daily stress of life.

1st time to visit. Welcome Center is very accommodating and informational. Variety of trails combining Forrest and Lake scenery. Well maintained and well marked....take water bottle if weather dictates. Will return again in the Fall to view luscious foliage.

My wife and I started coming here 40 years ago which is how long we have been married. It's awesome getting out in Natures Church for an hour or so. So close to Nashville's downtown and still feel like you've gone somewhere exotic. A wonderful treasure for natives and visitors alike.

What a beautiful park to hike in! A must see but be ready to walk! Otters, turtles, rescued eagles and other birds. The park rangers are extremely knowledgeable and friendly!!

This is hands down my favorite thing to do in Nashville. Even on a hot summer day when the temperatures were in the 90s, I could come walk the trail at Radnor. The trail is completely shaded and the temps were probably 15 degrees cooler.

Nice easy trail around the lake. We saw deer about 20 yards off of the path. One thing of note - no running or jogging on the trail. That was a surprise.

I stopped here for an afternoon run/jog when on vacation in Nashville. Much to my surprise and disappointment, the trail signs specifically said no dogs and no running/jogging on the trail. Something about keeping the natural area undisturbed was the reasoning. While I enjoyed my walk around the lake, I would never return because I could not bring my dogs... More

Very nice place to enjoy the out doors great walking trails through the woods and then you finish out on an old road that borders the lake that is for walking only. The only drawback is you can't jog here
