Free, Popular with locals, Family-friendly, Off the beaten path

While Nashville boasts its share of green spaces, few are as beloved as Radnor Lake. The 1,200-acre park at the very southern tip of the city is the place locals go for a true escape from urban life; dogs aren't allowed on the wide, unpaved paths, and most activities—such as hunting, boating, and cycling on the trails—are forbidden, too. The new Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center provides refuge for endangered birds like the bald eagle, enabling visitors to see these feathered friends up close, and sightings of other wildlife like deer, river otters, beavers, turkeys, muskrat, bobcats, and coyotes are commonplace.
