Great place to explore along the beautiful Cumberland River . Nice to see while your in town since its the root of Nashville . However I was surprised by all the homeless people. Also a good amount of police in the area so i felt safe enough with my kids .

Very small, but a nice little place if you are walking by the river. FYI a lot of homeless stay around there.

Site is very small and was taped off for construction.
I wouldn’t make a trip just for this, it’s smaller than a child’s playground and right next to the street, so not really kid friendly.
