- A nice spot for a picnic.
I had set out to find the Harpeth River Park, but unless it's just the locked soccer fields off of Coley Davis Road, I never did find it. So we went in search of a park we could find, and we ended up in the little park under the bridge that crosses the Harpeth on 100. I looked on the state's website, though, and I can't find it listed
I've reviewed parks that aren't really parks before, but never one that so forcefully insisted on its own park status. Shoot, it even had a little metal cylinder for visitors to put donations in. Was it lying about not being a park? Or has it been forgotten by the state?
The grass hadn't been mowed in some time, so maybe the state has forgotten about it. I don't know.
Anyway, it's very lovely and the bridge is also very striking. It'd be a nice place to take a picnic lunch (and they do have some tables). Just be aware that the driveway is steeper than you expect getting out, so if you are in a car, it's a little difficult to see if someone's coming.
