    Beautiful downtown park
    Enjoyed the park, seeing all the different monuments. The walkway highlighting the Tennessee history was a great introduction to the state museum which is right across the street. Great view of the State Capitol. Only issue is parking. It may be difficult if there is alot going on in the Farmers Market.

    Great place to walk around
    We visited the Tenesee state museum and then walked around the area. We reached the columns exactly when the chimes struck 12 pm. It was wonderful to hear it and see the views. Beautiful architecture.

    A nice walk.
    There were a festival set-up in the park and therefore most of the park was blocked off. Neat 'history of the state of TN from the beginning of time' presentation. Lots of people walking dogs, families with small kids, etc. I felt very safe here.

    Really interesting area. Farmers market. Bells. Walk of history. Great views!
    Da wife and I drove down from Columbus, Ohio to kick around for a few days. Hopped on the local hop on, hop off trolley and checked out the town. This stop is at the Farmers Market, but there’s lots more to see in the Bicentennial park. Lots of history monuments (Tennessee was the first state admitted back into the union after the end of the civil war) and beautiful views of the State Capital.

Nice walk with a great view of downtown Nashville. There is a cool marble long walkway that goes through the timeline history of Nashville, along with the WWII tribute with a spinning globe water fountain.

I wanted to get a nice picture of the state capitol, one of only 12 US capitols without a dome and I got a great picture here. Nice stop to walk around a little bit.

The park is beautifully located at the base of the hill that the Capitol Building sits on, in downtown Nashville.
Walking through the 11 acre park you can learn a lot about Tennessee history. There is also a WWII Memorial, a 95-Bell Carillon, and a 200 ft granite map of the state.
There is plenty to see here. It is a great place to take the whole family.

Great to learn about another state's history. The Decade wall was very powerful. Interesting memorial to WWII.

This park is huge and all of the Tennessee history was crazy from stone age to now and please don't miss the Towers chiming or the Farmer's Market.

This is a nice =, small, non-treed park with a great view of the capital. The staff is nice, and it's got great souvenirs. Parking is not great, at all, but that's true of most of downtown Nashville. We parked outside of Nashville and Ubered in.
