The Hidden Park That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Discovered Nashville’s Best Kept Secret
Nashville’s park population has exploded recently, renovating greenways and building out the ever-popular Shelby Park for families on the east side. With Radnor Lake in Brentwood and the lone Beaman Park out north, you may wonder if there’s a spot that perfectly pairs the accessibility and isolated climate of the two. Well, just take a jaunt down Neely’s Bend – we found a Saturday park for you to explore.
Peeler Park is located at the end of Neely's Bend in Madison, Tennessee. It's surrounded by small neighborhood homes and farms with land.
The Cumberland River snakes right by it, threading the already stunning area with beautiful outlooks and gorgeous sunsets.
The Peeler Park Greenway is fairly short, but has been extended and revamped in recent years. The multi-use trail is perfect for runners, dog walkers and families carting strollers.
Peeler Park has made a name for itself when it comes to the townie wildlife experience. While on a walk, you'll see all sorts of beautiful flowers in the spring, deer and their fawn, plus a few dogs from other walkers.
There is also an R/C Airfield in the park, making this one of the most popular post-Christmas outings. Most kids want to try out their new toys, after all.
There are also equesterian trails that are not accessible by pedestrians, whereas horses are not allowed on the paved greenway. You may want to check out the park map before you head out - just in case.
There is also a boat ramp that provides river access for those of you looking to enjoy a bit of time on the water.
Due to the flatness of the greenway and paved whole of it, Peeler Park has turned into a mecca for those looking to bike in a less trafficked area. Nashville has exceeded all expectations for population growth, so finding an out of the way spot is akin to discovering gold.
If you're looking to access this stunning area, you'll want to punch the following in your GPS: 2043 Neelys Bend Road. It'll most definitely get you there!
