If you ever wanted to see the Parthenon, but don't think you'll get to Greece, here is your chance. This is an amazing site and the statue of Athena inside is breathtaking. Don't miss it!

I have always wanted to visit the real Parthenon. This was almost as good as being there. Actually, it's a little better, in that this Parthenon is not a ruin. It is built to represent the original structure, as it was originally.

Don't go through Nashville without visiting the Parthenon in Centennial Park. This place is amazing. Amazing as the statue of Athena and the friezes of the various Greek gods and goddesses are, we enjoyed the art gallery inside the Parthenon even more. After the Parthenon...More

Great time. If you are visiting the park you can visit the Pantheon and the best park is that for visiting inside the Pantheon is free. People go to Centennial Park for running, walking or just enjoy the trees, birds... while in Nashville my recommendation...More

The statue of Athena looked like a Hindu goddess. There are a few paintings in the downstairs museum and a few Greek statue reproductions upstairs. Not worth the price of admission.

The park was absolutely beautiful! On such a gorgeous Saturday evening, being in the park was perfect. Many families enjoyed themselves in the park and it was not crowded at all. It was very pleasurable.

I really liked this place a park very close to the university and it is clean and with a nice replica it really close detail. The park is in walking distance to the university and is lit at night and accessible by public transport.

Went for a run here a couple mornings so only really saw it in the mornings. Seemed like many others had the same idea. Seemed clean and well manicured. Nice decent sized city park.

I ran around the park one day and went back the next for a visit to the Parthenon. The story of the building and the park were very interesting.
