Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park

Located in the shadow of the Capitol in downtown Nashville, Bicentennial Capitol Mall gives visitors a taste of Tennessee’s history, natural wonders and serves as a lasting monument to Tennessee’s Bicentennial Celebration, which was June 1, 1996.
With just a simple walk in the 19-acre park visitors can experience many facets of Tennessee’s history including a 200-foot granite map of the state, a World War II Memorial, a 95-Bell Carillon, a Pathway of History and the Rivers of Tennessee Fountains (which children can splash in!) The 11 planters along the Walkway of Counties show native plant species from different regions of the state.
The visitor center, picnic tables and restrooms are located under the train trestle. Picnic tables are available on a first come, first serve basis. Adjacent to the park is the Nashville Farmer’s Market. Open year-round, the market is home to restaurants and shops with a wide variety of offerings and cuisines.
The park features a 2,000-seat amphitheater that provides dramatic views of the Nashville skyline. Composed of terraced lawns, the amphitheater was designed after the Greek theater at Epidaurus.
