Family of hikers at Radnor Lake State Park near Olympus Midtown in Nashville, Tennessee



While there is nothing quite like the buzzing energy of the big city, sometimes you need a break from honking horns and flashing lights. When you are eager to decompress from urban life and reconnect with nature, look no further than Radnor Lake State Park, a 1,368-acre park located just 15 minutes from our luxury apartments in Nashville. Radnor Lake State Park offers visitors a variety of ways to escape city life and spend time in the natural elements without traveling far from home.


Enjoy a morning stroll or a brisk afternoon hike along the 6+ miles of trails winding through the park. These well-maintained trails are reserved for hiking and wildlife watching so you won't have to worry about any mountain bikers or trail runners taking you by surprise. If jogging or biking is more your speed, check out the paved Otter Creek Road Trail that offers scenic views of the lake.

The park is known for its diverse wildlife and fauna, so it is an excellent place to practice photography or birdwatching. You can expect to encounter a variety of mammals and birds, including deer, wild turkey, geese, muskrat, hummingbirds, and many more! Trails are open from 6:00 am to sunset daily.


This State Park offers a variety of educational programs and activities for inquisitive visitors. If you are looking to learn something new, consider taking a workshop with professional photographer Robin Conover to learn more about combining technique and artistry in nature photography. Workshops are offered one weekend per month. Other fun events include stargazing night hikes, nature walks, and ranger-led canoe floats. Check out the event calendar to plan your visit!
