The streets of Nashville are home to some of the best honky tonk bars in America. But there’s more to this city than country music and two step. Cumberland Park offers visitors 6.5 acres of outdoor fun along the picturesque riverfront.
Travelers with small children can make a day of this beautiful new park, which includes plenty of activities for the younger set. The Hollow offers up an interactive nature center, complete with a life-size maze. The Gorge’s climbing wall provides kids with an opportunity to scale walls and engage with peers. And the Explorer Trail winds through wide open spaces—a respite from the sounds of downtown Nashville.
Cumberland Park is known for attracting children and families, but a full calendar of events aimed at an older crowd means there’s something for everyone at this popular spot. Visitors can spend an afternoon enjoying the park on their own, or see it as part of a Nashville carriage ride, which hits up all the Nashville monuments, too.
Cumberland Park is located at 592 South First Street between the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge and the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge.
