When we lived in Nashville, we would take a weekly trip with our dogs to the Parks (usually Percy Warner). The layouts are wonderful in that we could go weekly, yet feel like we were visiting a different park each time. The layout also makes the park feel as if there is never an overabundance of visitors, even if the parking lots are full!

The large hill above the Steeplechase is an ideal setting for a nice picnic or to appreciate the views. They also have a terrific dog park. I visited every single dog park from Murfreesboro to Clarksville and the one here was by far the safest and filled with the most responsible pet owners. It does however have a lack of trees, so it is pretty hot in the summer!

Cannot wait until the day we can move back to Nashville and utilize this amazing resource!

We just do not have a park like this where we live now and it makes us appreciate it even more!

Lots of trails throughout both parks. Motor-nature trails in Percy Warner. Old roadway in Edwin Warner is closed to cars, making easier walking on the pavement. The park has over 2200 acres of land, a steeplechase course, ball fields, model airplane field, picnic grounds with sheltered sites, dog park, open fields great for running around with frisbees/footballs/kites/etc. They park has lots of wildlife from salamanders to deer, foxes to coyotes, owls to Canada geese. There are horseback riding trails and plans to build a mountain bike trail. there are movies in the park during warm-weather months, and a monthly bluegrass night at the steeplechase stables from spring to late fall. Several other events are held here annually. A true asset to the city.

The grand stone steps at the entrance to the part at the terminus of Belle Meade Boulevard is a sight to see and climb. At the top the start of a delightful trail into the forest for hike to fantastic viewpoint to look at city buildings and magnificent homes in Belle Meade area. Wild deer and turkeys roam the park year round and two wonderful public golf courses make this huge park a destination you do not want to miss...also overlooked by
tourists only looking for "Music City" hustle.

Lots of hills and plenty of miles of beautiful trails. Bring a friend or bring a dog and get your sweat on!

Beautiful park with all the usual additions (ball & soccer fields, picnic areas, nature walks, etc). The middle Tennessee high schools use it regularly for their cross country competitions.
But it is May when it really comes alive with the running of the Iroquois Steeplechase. 20,000+ visitors make it a really big deal.
