Located in Nashville's west end, Centennial Park is a lush oasis that provides a relaxing break from Lower Broadway, which is considered the Honky Tonk Highway of Music City. With over 132 acres of land to explore, you will find an oasis of greenery. Centennial Park was once an old fairground and racetrack and was the site of the Tennessee Centennial and International Exposition. It is open to the public for recreation, and is a perfect place to spend a summer afternoon.

Another popular attraction in Centennial Park is the Parthenon, a full-scale replica of the Parthenon in Athens. Built as a temporary exhibit for the 1897 Centennial Exposition, the Parthenon is still standing today.

Despite its name, Centennial Park was once closed to blacks. Two African-American men were found swimming in the Centennial Park pool in 1961. Jim Crow laws at that time prevented blacks from using public swimming pools. Centennial Park was eventually filled with cement and became the Centennial Arts Center. In the same year, the Centennial Park Conservancy held a symposium exploring the injustice that occurred in the park's history.
