Some people swear that Two Rivers Dog Park in Nashville is one of the best in the country. Not only does the park have all of the most important amenities—including a double-gated entrance, doggie water fountains, trash cans, benches, and waste bag stations—it has one of the biggest fenced-in off-leash areas around. The huge seven-acre space isn't just big, it's beautiful, with gently rolling lawns, mature trees, and winding walkways stretching from one end of the park to another.
Two Rivers Dog Park is full of nice visual touches and places where you can sit and take it all in. As you and your dog explore the park, you'll find gazebos, picnic pavilions, landscaped areas with stones to sniff and climb, and groves of trees where your dog can relax in the shade. The wooden fencing around the park is a nice visual touch, with the practical feature of being covered by sturdy mesh so pups can't slip between the slats.
In addition to the splendidly large dog park, Two Rivers Park has other features to enhance your visit. The surrounding 374-acre park features historic stone walls and homes, a golf course, a skate park, and water features like streams, lakes, and frontage on the Cumberland River. Of most interest to canine travelers is the Stones River Greenway, a ten-mile river trail with beautiful boardwalks and bridges that winds right past the dog park and welcomes dogs on leashes.
Still, unless you're particularly in the mood for a long, scenic walk, your dog probably won't need to make use of the greenway after a day at Two Rivers Dog Park. There's so much room to run that even the most high-energy dogs should head home ready for a nap after romping for a couple of hours at this canine sanctuary.
Whether you're a local or just visiting, make sure you take your dog to Two Rivers Dog Park while you're here. As you play together in the free, wide open space, you'll make memories that you'll treasure for a lifetime.
