  • Centennial Park in Nashville, TN is my favorite park in Nashville. It is a BEAUTIFUL park...absolutely BEAUTIFUL. My favorite work of art is in this park and it is the Parthenon which is an exact replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. For ancient Greek lovers the Parthenon is a place to visit. There's a lot of wonderful things I can say about Centennial Park, but I suggest you go visit and spend a couple of hours or more. You will not be disappointed.
  • It is in total chaos. I have spent my entire life in Nashville. Why they got rid of the paddle boats out there in the pond is beyond me. Unless it has something to do with liability and insurance. You could always make the guest sign a waiver.... Metro would not be responsible. And all these people coming from other states are bringing their ways and do not want to simulate with the ways of Nashville. Which by all accounts was kindness, understanding with compassion and most of all good old southern hospitality. Waving and saying hello..... letting people know that you acknowledge them with a nice courtesy of eye contact and a smile... but I guess that's too much to ask for in this political correct Society. Lord bring back the Fairgrounds with the roller coaster , haunted house and the dodgems just to name a few. Oh well I digress...... to my chagrin!
