It is somewhat hard to locate. Small but informative. A park area with a raised boardwalk highlighting with placards aspects of Franklin's Civil War battles and skirmishes. Much review of the Franklin Civil War Battle experience.

Too bad most of the area closed; would love to have been able to access informational stations; however, it is great that they are trying so hard to preserve the area. It's wonderful that we can still feel and relive events from 150 years ago....More

Probably best to read up on history of Fort Granger before visiting so that way you will fully appreciate the layout of the grounds.

Pack your favorite lunch and wine and come to this serene park. It is the perfect setting to start your weekend. If you have not been, then you are missing out. Enjoy the weather and scenery with a basket of goodies.

Part of the Fort is closed for renovations. Noticed lots of markers with details along the walking trails. The remains if the bunkers are amazing and still in good condition. Can't wait to go back and hit the trials.
