  • This is a good historical site, but also a good place to catch pokemon in Pokemon Go. 2 Pokéstops, a gym, and lots of clefairy
  • This is a great little park for some exercise and some history. It features a climb to an area used to assess the Franklin battlefield, so the view is excellent!
  • Not to be missed when visiting Franklin. Hidden in plain sight. Take the stairs up to the overlook to see the bronze relief map that outlines how the Battle of Franklin unfolded. Especially worth the climb in the winter, when the leaves have fallen and you can see the contours of the land, — on a clear day, all the way across town to Fort Grainger. Recent improvements include a paved loop, great for strollers and walkers and areas for a picnic. PRO TIP: the long sloping approach to the overlook makes a great sledding sit for the two or three days every winter there's enough snow to break out the snow saucer.
  • I great park for walking, jogging, relaxing, and most importantly, recognizing those that sacrificed their lives at the Battle of Franklin.
  • Beautiful place
