This is a magnificent recreation of the Greek Parthenon and is spectacular night or day. There is access to the inside, but the times are somewhat limited, mainly in the afternoon.

During our trip from Ohio to Florida we stayed the night in downtown Nashville and chose our hotel because its location was close to this park. After riding in a car for 8+ hours we love to get out and walk around if possible and this park provided exactly what we needed. The park is very large especially for being... More

Perfect place to take a relaxing walk or sit in the sun, and dog friendly! With free parking, you can't go wrong. With attractions like the Parthenon, man made lake from the World's Fair, and plenty of space to run around I would suggest heading to Centennial Park.

This place is amazing to view - even more shocking is the original in Greece was built in 446bc out of marble. Not much to do here but walk around and relax. A quick visit is worthwhile.

It's a beautiful park and I can imagine it would be even better in the Spring. At wintertime, one still has the great expanse of the park and the Parthenon to enjoy.

We had some time to kill and decided to take the 1 mile walk around the park. We were lucky because the weather was very nice! My daughters fav part was the swinging benches!

This public park provides a nice scenic walk around a Parthenon replica. There are often wildlife to be seen around the tributary and there is plenty of shade to escape hot days.

Love Centennial Park; room for kids to run, fun play areas, beautifully kept, great walking/jogging paths and of course the Parthenon is awesome. Great place for families or friends to have some time in nature!

We love taking our dog for a walk on the park's trail and letting him run in many of the open fields at the park. Afterwards, we will walk him over to the dog park to let him (and us!) play with other friendly Nashville dogs.
