Nashville has a lot of great parks, several of which are located near The Hermitage Hotel, the only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel in Tennessee. The nearest is the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. The 19-acre park was built for the state’s bicentennial and includes pretty green spaces and historical monuments.
One of Nashville’s favorite parks is Centennial Park on West End Avenue and 25th Avenue North. The 132-acre park includes a full-scale replica of the Parthenon that has become a symbol for Nashville as the “Athens of the South.” The park has walking trails, lovely gardens, playgrounds, a lake and lots more. You can catch a bunch of great events there, too, such as concerts, festivals, Shakespeare and movies.
