I went to Nashville for a weekend to celebrate with some very special women in my life and had a great time. Before beginning our final activities on Sunday, I had the opportunity early that morning to go to one of my favorite places, the park.
After consulting the Googles for a park near the hotel, I spent a beautiful crisp morning at Whitsett Park, which is one of six segments of the Mill Creek Greenway. The paved trail which is approximately 1.2 miles accesses the creek, includes a playground, pavilion and community garden (which I did not locate).
The trail is flat, fast, mostly tree covered, and absolutely gorgeous. Though this was a fall excursion with perfect weather, Whitsett Park would still be good cover on a hot summer morning.
There were few people in the park, likely due to weather which was in the 40s (too cool for some folks), it being 8:00 am, and a Sunday. Yet, the park felt safe for those who want to be alone with nature.
If you are in Nashville and stay near the airport during your visit, I highly recommend a stop at Whitsett Park.
Until next time, see you on the trail.
In memory of Donna and Joni
