Nashville offers breathtaking views, and some of the most spectacular sites in Music City are housed in its parks. With ornate and pristinely kept gardens, hiking trails, and unique sites, the parks are wonderful places to spend an afternoon, a morning, or the whole day. From the historically-rich Parthenon in Centennial Park to the friendly wilderness of the trails in Radnor Lake, there's something for everyone. Year-round the parks are open and prepared to tip their hat in quintessential southern hospitality. But the fall offers the expansive and breathtaking foliage of the south, spring welcomes the awakening of a variety of gorgeous flowers, and summer ushers in Shakespeare in the Park. Whatever the time of year, it's always the season for a picnic in one of Music City's beloved parks.
