We were staying right across the street from the park, and wow! It was so lovely walking through. The Tennessee music icons, the world war II memorial, the history of Tennessee...it was wonderful. Really nice layout, made for a really pleasant late afternoon stroll

Beautiful park with a history of Tennessee wall World War 2 memorial and so much more. Very close to a farmers market if you want to escape the heat and buy some refreshments. Easy stop on the hop on hop off trolley.
