Fodor's Review

Built to celebrate Tennessee's bicentennial, this beautifully landscaped 19-acre park includes a 2,000-seat amphitheater, a scaled map of the state in granite, a World War II memorial, a wall etched with a timeline of state events, and fountains representing each of Tennessee's rivers (you'll see both kids and adults splashing in them April–October). Guided tours are now offered 2 pm Wednesday and 10 am, 1 and 3 pm the first Monday of each month. The park has a number of picnic tables and there are several dining options at the nearby Farmers Market.
