Fort Granger Park is a nice place to take a moment and place yourself in Civil War history. When my husband and I went, there were only a couple of people there so we could take our time to read each board and not feel rushed with other people around. The fort doesn't look like much, but the earth fort... More

Soldiers from this elevated fort could look and shoot down at the enemy below. This was a large self sustained fortress and was too strong to be attacked by the Confederates.

This is a small park with a lot of Civil War history. Some of the park is under renovation (as of March 2017) and is not walkable. However, you are able to see trenches dug by Civil War soldiers, which is pretty neat for tween-aged children and history-loving adults as well (such as myself). There's a raised boardwalk over the... More

It is somewhat hard to locate. Small but informative. A park area with a raised boardwalk highlighting with placards aspects of Franklin's Civil War battles and skirmishes. Much review of the Franklin Civil War Battle experience.

Too bad most of the area closed; would love to have been able to access informational stations; however, it is great that they are trying so hard to preserve the area. It's wonderful that we can still feel and relive events from 150 years ago. It still has a foot bridge across the area so you can see what it... More

My daughter and I enjoyed the short loop through this park that offered some great Civil War history.

Probably best to read up on history of Fort Granger before visiting so that way you will fully appreciate the layout of the grounds.

Pack your favorite lunch and wine and come to this serene park. It is the perfect setting to start your weekend. If you have not been, then you are missing out. Enjoy the weather and scenery with a basket of goodies.

The battle of Franklin was a tragic day for the Confederate States and the Union with 2,000 combined fatalities. The carnage only lasted for hours, yet it was one of the bloodiest days in American history. The city of Franklin has done the community a disservice by not maintaining this historic park. The displays are molding and the trails are... More

Part of the Fort is closed for renovations. Noticed lots of markers with details along the walking trails. The remains if the bunkers are amazing and still in good condition. Can't wait to go back and hit the trials.
