The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and Spring has finally arrived! What better way to celebrate the season than by getting outdoors and enjoying Mother Nature? We know the perfect place to do just that: Warner Parks, home to both Percy and Edwin Warner Parks.
With dog-friendly trails and heart-pumping inclines, we love these parks for hikes and picnics with friends. Percy Warner is home to several trails (for hikers and horses), picnic areas, and the famous Steeplechase fields. Neighboring Edwin Warner is home to even more trails and picnic areas, a dog park for your furry friends, and the Warner Parks headquarters.
The nine trails within the Percy and Edwin Parks range from 150 yards to 4.5 miles long. One of our favorite trails is the Warner Woods Trail, a 2.5-mile loop, marked in White and labeled a moderate intensity hike. Hikers can enjoy beautiful views from the cleared knob of Luke Lea Heights by walking down a paved road that the trail crosses mid-hike.
Friends of Warner Parks works hard to preserve and protect Percy and Edwin Warner Parks, supporting recreational activities, maintenance of trails and facilities, and promoting programs to educate the public on park conservation. The group hosts events that you can find posted on their website’s calendar. Check out the Animal Egg Hunt this Saturday with the kids for a fun Easter weekend adventure, or spend a night under the stars with telescopes at the Spring Star Party.
One of Nashville’s most beautiful historical community resources (it is even listed in the National Register of Historic Places!) is right at your fingertips, so get outside and enjoy the sunshine at Warner Parks!
