While visiting Nashville, Tn last week, we happened to pick a weekend which had in the downtown area the 1st Predators hockey game Fri night, Tennessee State football Sat afternoon, Adele concerts Fri and Sat night, and Tennessee Titians Sunday. With over 200,000 fans in area and parking at $30 and up, we escaped for a while to Radnor Lake... More

The nature walk here is fantastic. While there are many trails, there is an easy two and a half walk around the lake. We saw several deer, several wading birds, and a barred owl. It is a real place of beauty very near to the city. It is a great place to visit early in the day before other attractions... More

This is a nice park, not too far from Nashville center. We were looking for something that was a little bigger/allowed for more roaming, but this gets the job done when you need to get out of the city.

A friend and I walked there last weekend. Everything was great until (what i think is large) snake trying to eat a squirrel fell out of the tree in front of us. It freaked us out and we ran lol.

We came about 1.5 hours before sunset and had plenty of time to walk around the lake. This is just a nice walk. This is not what I would consider a hike. The path is wide and smooth enough there were several there with strollers. You can escape the main path a little by a couple of trails that branch... More

We were looking for something active to do in Nashville besides walking to another Honky Tonk, and found Radnor Lake State Park on TA. About a 15-20 minute drive from downtown. Opens early, closes at sunset. There is a visitor center on arrival where there are maps as well as park workers to help you out. The trails range anywhere... More

Great hidden park that has multiple hiking trails fit for all levels of hikers. Usually, you see some type of animal while hiking the trails. Very pretty.

Our plan was to do a little trail walking and take a break from a busy Nashville visit, and there’s nothing like nature to bring you back to your quiet place. When we pulled into the parking lot, it was small and full and the place looked packed! Just as we decided to go somewhere else, a spot opened and... More

We arrived about 1.5 hours before dark. Had time to walk around the lake and explore a bit. Lovely park with lake. Trails in excellent condition. Quiet and clean. Thanks Nashville for keeping this all natural!

Radnor Lake is nestled between Franklin Road and Granny White Pike in Nashville, TN which if you know anything about these two roads and areas, means, it's a hidden gem that you could easily drive right by and never know. Radnor Lake is a beautiful 1,332-acre state park, originally constructed in 1914 by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad as a... More
