Parks and Recreation

Situated in the center of the Nashville Basin, Middle Tennessee is buffeted by natural beauty on all sides: we are bordered by the Cumberland Highlands and the Cumberland Plateau, with the geography of our communities characterized  by the fertile farm lands, rich natural beauty and diverse wildlife. The Cumberland River flows through our counties, with numerous tributaries and lakes providing waterfronts in a landlocked state, uniquely beautiful and rare. Whites Creek, Manskers Creek, Stone River, Mill Creek, and the Harpeth River, as well as Radnor Lake, which is often reffered to as “Nashville’s Walden”are just a few of the waterways where residents and visitors find a variety of activities and an idyllic retreat from the hustle of the city.
