Tennessee's First State Natural Area
Radnor Lake State Park and State Natural Area in Nashville, TN is the first State Park to have been given the designation of Natural Area in the State of Tennessee. Radnor Lake State Park is just over 1,400 acres, with the lake accounting for 85 acres of the park.
As a protected Class II Natural Area, Radnor Lake is unique due to the abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities, environmental education programs, hiking opportunities, and its location in an urban area.
The park is day-use only and the 7.75 miles of trail are strictly used for hiking, photography, and wildlife observation. Pets, jogging, and bicycles are only allowed on the Otter Creek Road Trail.
