Lovely state Park, lots of people quietly enjoying their day. Plenty of birds for photography or bird watching. It's a good way to spend a few hrs.

Very cool and scenic state park. Cool ability to hike through the woods. There are a lot of areas to have picnics if you pack a lunch. Different paths to take throughout. Nice big lake!

This park does not feel like it is right in the middle of Nashville. We spent a morning hiking with our kids (ages 3-11). We saw more wildlife here than we have ever seen at state parks, etc, and we hike a lot! Turkeys, deer, turtles, birds, snakes, etc. Lovely park!

View the homes (mansions) in Old Hickory area. These are estates.....gates to get on the property, 2 homes joined together as a massive mansion. Getting back to Radnor Lake. Lots to see and good for hiking.

In the fall it is only fitting that you would want to be out in Nature. Unfortunately, we happened to hit this park when here was a special event going on making it impossible to find parking anywhere. Make sure that this doesn't happen to you because it is very difficult to turn around as the road is narrow with... More

So you've shut down the honky- tonks on Broadway and wake up the next morning needed some peace and quite. Head to Radnor Lake. The most interesting route from downtown is to straight down 12th south which turns into Granny White Pike.(This tendency of roads to change names is one of the quirks locals love but I'm sure it a...

I love visiting this place. It's great in the spring and fall for a walkZ you can often times find deer and owls around the park.
