Centennial Dog Park
Parthenon Museum Centennial Parkway
Centennial park is a great place to walk, jog, take kids to play, feed ducks, learn a little about Nashville history. They continue to update and improve the grounds. It's beautiful!

This is the only exact size replica of the original. I was impressed with the history and the artifacts. The art gallery was the appropriate size for the building. They were in the middle of guilding their huge Athena statue which obstructed viewing. I would love to see her when they are finished.

I lived in Nashville for 4 years before I went to see the Parthenon with family visiting from out of town and was totally blown away. A must see for anyone who is interested in Greek mythology, but what surprised me most was the artwork and Nashville history that I found. Learning how the Parthenon came to be in Nashville was a real eye opener and a look into Nashville's past. Plus there are always events going on in Centennial park, that make this a cool place to hang out. Watch for an art show to appear, admission is free during the time of the show.

i remember going to the parthenon with my eighth grade class in 1968. everything was even bigger then. imagine my delight to go with my husband and two sons thirty-three years later. we especially enjoyed the informative tours and the exploring of the greek gods and goddesses. i think my kids will probably take their kids to the parthenon someday.
