Today a large, popular park, the original purpose of Centennial Park was to host Tennessee's centennial exposition in 1897. The main attraction of the park, and one of the most famous exhibits of the exposition, is the Parthenon replica. Explore inside this full-scale reproduction, then visit the art center for some more modern creative works. You can walk or jog the short trail or play volleyball in another area. You'll find plenty of spots for relaxing, such as the sunken garden. If you need to catch up with friends or family, the park features free Wi-Fi access. Our Nashville trip builder makes visiting Centennial Park and other Nashville attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This park offers wide open spaces to play Frisbee, picnic areas, reflecting ponds, old trains, evening concerts, weekend art shows, food trucks, and much more. 
  • Fantastic park! Several areas to walk/jog, play guitar, etc. There are multiple covered areas on the warmer days, and it is a safe environment for small children. They love to feed the ducks in the pond! There is a huge open space in front of the Parthenon museum, about 150-200 yards long, which is great for workouts/yoga, reading under a tree, playing catch or frisbee, or just playing with your furry friend. Always kept clean with lawns/greenery well maintained.
  • Great park with a lot to do! Take a walk around the pond, go visit the train, see a show at Musicians Corner, or throw a frisbee around on many of the open grassy areas. Downfall would be parking, but we've always found a spot... You just can't be picky about where. There are many small parking lots around the exterior of the pond and the road that goes around the entire park is one way. If you see a spot, take it!
  • Amazing my husband wanted to go for so long and we finally went and he was not disappointed. Alot if infornation abput tge Building and pictures.
  • Brought my 3 yr old and my two miniature daschunds...There's soo much to do for all. My son never gets tired of looking at the train, the jet, and of course the play ground and swings. Even if you don't go inside the Parthenon, the area around it is beautiful and perfect for a stroll, jogging, exercise, and even sun bathing. My dogs on the other hand love the numerous squirrels around every bend. This place is one of my special places in the World. :)
  • This place is wonderful! So majestic! Really is a great place to visit if your in the Nashville area.. (Centennial is currently a gastly nest, for Pokemon go players lol)
