This is well worth a walk along, on a nice day. Also close to the Fort which also is worth looking through

This was a nice place to sit and have a picnic before we started walking around Downtown Nashville. There are many food choices around or you could bring your own.

We love coming down to Riverfront park when we are in town. If the sun is out, it will be the best day! Check out the walking bridge over the river and relax on the green grass.

Riverfront park was nice, but not spectacular, like the one in Cincinnati. It is a bit drab, with very few gardens, and a walking path along the river. For some reason, as we visited the park, we didn't feel 100% safe. That is not to say it isn't safe, but is doesn't have that open feel. There is a dog... More

Great places for a picnic, a break from the Nashville noise, and the walking bridge had some wonderful views and is free. We saw many getting engagement and wedding pics on the bridge and people pasing... More

This is the place to be when it's hot! The breeze is great. It's located at the end of Broadway and 1st, so you can see down Broadway and choose where you want to go. Plus if you walk toward the Ascend theater, you find a dog park and swings.

This park is below the River Bridge and is a place where runners run and exercise, they have bikes to rent for the day and is a nice place to relax and view the Nissan Stadium across the River

Sit by the water, listen to free music and watch the barges and tugs go up and down the river! Right at the end of Broadway. On a dunny day its very cool to come hang out and lay out for a while. When you are done, walk the bridge!
