Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park

Nature & Parks

As urban Nashville boomed in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the ground here was too soft for high-rise construction due to the historic salt lick that originally attracted wildlife, Native Americans, trappers and settlers to the area. This park was created in the 1990s to save the one remaining view of the Capitol and to commemorate Tennessee's 200th birthday. Visit this 19-acre park, stroll the "Pathway of History" and splash in 31 fountains, all tributes to Tennessee's waterways. Due to damage from the 2010 Nashville Flood, the fountains are under restoration, projected for completion Memorial Day 2012.

Harpeth River State Park

Nature & Parks

Influential iron producer, Montgomery Bell created this engineering masterpiece he named Pattison Forge in 1818: a 200-foot tunnel chiseled by slaves through solid rock at the "narrows" of the Harpeth River. The tunnel diverted water from the river to create force as it fell, powering iron-forge machinery. Take one of the marked nature trails to get a great view of the water spilling through the tunnel. The "narrows" is just one of several sites along the river that make up this linear park, a popular spot for hiking, canoeing and fishing.
