A stunning 1,332-acre park full of wildlife located in an urban area? Give me the deets please!

By Kelley Brackett
There's a reason you won't find runners, cyclists, pet parents, or picnickers winding through the trails at Radnor Lake, it's protected as a Class II Natural Area deemed significant because of the abundant wildlife that call the park home. If you're a marathoner looking to put in major miles outdoors, this is not your bag, baby (there's actually a $200 fine)! But if you are a nature lover that wants to hike and stroll through more than 6 miles of trail, come on in!

We're talking deer, wild turkey, owls, wildflowers, and even otters—you're bound to see something incredible here. While the animals don't say much, the staff are extremely friendly and will give you pointers for your outing. The staff even host a series of outdoor activities including canoe floats, night hikes, and wildflower walks. We recommend hanging around to watch the sunset over Radnor Lake—you may just forget you're still in Nashville.

Have an itch to bring an animal, go for a run or cycle? Otter Creek Road Trail is right by the park and fine free!
