  • A must see if your in Franklin. This site lays out the battle of Franklin and and explains how the battle was fought and the aftermath that followed. It's free and a nice place to spend an afternoon.  more »
  • Worth a stop! Especially if you are a civil war buff, or if you just want a beautiful view of the city!  more »
  • I would not put it up with the major battleships, so visit just for a picnic park or if you are really interested in delving into all the local battles of the civil war.  more »

  • I was directed to stop and see this park and was pleasantly surprised. I really appreciated the fact that there is a phone number you can call and punch in the park number and there is a recording of what piece of history went down at that particular location. If you want something to fill a half hour or somewhere to walk and stretch out, this is a good place to do it.
  • Excellent place for a stroll. There is a lot of history here as well. Dog friendly.
  • Nice place to learn about the Civil War or if you are looking for some nice scenery to take pictures and walk around with family and friends.
  • A wonderful park with beautiful shaded walking trail and lots of history
  • Historical war memorial that most people don't even know is here. Easy parking and walking. Well marked and informative.
