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

Great place for a walk. Around a beautiful Lake. Somehow they get numerous groups to volunteer with trails and clean up, so very clean.

This is a popular place to walk. There is a information center with restrooms, A/C and soft drinks. The trails are easy to medium for walking and the shade is wonderful. The views of the lake are outstanding. Worth your time if you like to walk.

I am a resident of Nashville so I go here often. It has some great hiking trails for a variety of hikers. There are paved paths and some pretty steep trails. You can see deer, turtles, a variety of birds including some pretty ferocious wild turkeys. Very crowded on weekends. Nice thing is that picnicking is not permitted so there... More

I love this lake. Great for walking, hiking, and taking nature photographs. So nice in the fall. I feel safe to walk alone also.

This is a stunning relaxing park. The hikes aren't too hard and take you up over a hill around the beautiful lake. There's loads of wildlife that include deer, turtles and snakes.

We had an awesome experience hiking through this park. The trails are in great shape. We saw turkeys, deer, a heron, and turtles. Benches are placed throughout the trails. Perfect for a brief rest or observing wildlife. I would highly recommend checking this park out if the opportunity presents.

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.
