We particularly love the fountains representing the TN rivers. We take our toddler there to run through and play in the water and experience other children in our community who love to do the same so bring a change of clothes or water attire. There is a train tressel there also where trains often go by which the children love. As a TN native, born and raised, I find all of the factual information about TN to be interesting and am more educated as a result of walking around in the park and fountain area. As my son grows older, I plan to come back so he can learn to love this more urban type of park, right on the edge of downtown Nashville, and more importantly to appreciate TN history. It is very educational, lots of reading to do. An added benefit is the farmer's market next door where families can eat and shop.
Pros: educational, fun fountains to play in, grassy space for picnics, food/shopping next door
Cons: small, in the city, no playgrounds
