Centennial Park

Centennial Park is located 2 miles west of Downtown Nashville and near the campus of Vanderbilt University. This is one of the most beautiful and well known parks in the Nashville area. With over 132 acres of park area, the possibilities are endless. Check out the Centennial Sportsplex. It has Olympic caliber swimming pools, ice skating, tennis courts and a fitness center. There are walking trails, dog parks, play parks and green space boasting beautiful trees, ponds, and sunken gardens. Centennial Park will also appeal to the art & history buff as well. Within the park, there is a full-size scale replica of the Greek Parthenon. It was constructed in 1897 to celebrate the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Inside, a statue of Athena, a 42 foot full size replica of the original. The Parthenon also serves as Nashville’s Art Museum.
