We walked around the park and the market next to the park. I loved reading the walls with the big events in history recorded on them. It was a neat spot to explore. In the market area there were venders with food, drinks and crafts. I think it's used as a farmers market in the warmer months.

I love this park and have been coming here since I was a kid. The Nashville Farmer's Market is a great place to pick up some great veggies and fruit or some food inside from the vendors.

This par is very well laid out on the north side of the State Capitol building and adjacent to the Farmers Markets. There are always people exercising throughout the park. At the top of the park is a huge map of Tennessee laid out on the ground. Around this area some homeless people hang out, but they keep to themselves.... More

Bicentennial Mall is a wonderful place for downtown employees to find respite from a crazy day and escape all of the business of town. It provides a perfect environment for strolling, running, picnicking, and/or history lessons.

We were not happy to be dropped off here as the area was unsafe and filled with homeless beggars. Not a safe place for kids.

We went to a Titans game and walked over the bridge from downtown. We walked through here heading back. Such a cool spot! We enjoyed our walk through here.

Walked around the park for about 2 hours, really informative stone wall with the history of Tennessee carved all along it. Had a very nice WWII memorial in the middle of the park. Definitely worth a visit.

The bells sound every 15 minutes and play tunes on the hour. They are beautifully lite and encaptivating.
