The uniqueness of it and the mosaics made it double fun to climb and seek and find pictures etc. we even found Superman. Such a great way to play and get hungry before... More

Had an extended family gathering with many small children and some teens. We rented the pavilion for a very reasonable price for all day. The pavilion was clean with ample trash receptacles. The playground is very shaded with seating near for adults so you can watch the kids. The playground has a zero entry ramp for small children and others... More

My kiddo really liked the slide and swings but there were so many other spots that other kids were going bananas on. It the dragon was super cool to look at, I... More

A great little park in Nashville. The mosaic tile art on the dragon is super cool! Pretty trees and also area for the kids to run off energy, in addition to them climbing all over the dragon!

This is one of the best kept secrets in Nashville... A beautiful park created for children of all abilities to enjoy. The park gets its nickname from the beautiful mosaic dragon sculpture at one end of the park, and it is a wonderful piece of artwork.

The dragon is a unique feature but the smallest kids enjoyed the tunnel more. It was was not crowded and in a better park of town.

Small urban park near the Hillsboro Road and Vandy area. The draw is the wonderful mosaic dragon but the staying power is watching all the children as they play. A little bit of magic in the city!

After visiting Centennial Park and the children were not too impressed , we had the "Dragon Park" on our list of things to do in Nashville , so we decided to give it a try. Just what we needed before getting on the road again! What fun! They climbed all over the beautiful ceramic dragon sculpture ( got great pictures!)... More
