Beautiful! Peaceful! Have a picnic in front of a jetliner, train, fountain, ducks, or one of Nashville's prettiest buildings (The Parthenon).
A locals favorite to walk & jog.

The Parthenon in Nashville's Centennial Park is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens. The oddity is worth a quick stop to enjoy the structure in its large park.

The Parthenon is definitely worth seeing if you have the time. It's an exact replica of the Parthenon and one of my favorite places in the city. It's absolutely beautiful and there's a museum inside. You can usually get in for around $3-$5 and it's situated in a great park and near a lot of restaurants and Vanderbilt's campus, which is worth checking out as well.

I believe the first question here is "WHY?" Then you learn of its origins and understand it's basically their version of our Palace of Fine Arts...the sole survivor of a turn-of-the-century Exposition. Well, then, that's cool. We didn't go inside, just enjoyed the grandeur of the exterior. Maybe if I'm ever there again...

The Parthenon in Nashville is located in Centennial Park and is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens. It was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition and was the only work to be preserved, as people used to become fond of it and costs for destroying it were too expensive. It was a shock for me, drving through Nashville and finding out the Parthenone just here!!!!
