About The Adventure Park at Nashville
Sporting 12 different courses, including 15 zip lines, and 156 different elements, The Adventure Park is the largest attraction of its kind in the Nashville area offering fun for adventurers of all ages and ability levels.
There are trails suitable for kids, teens, adults, and groups. These trails consist of platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form “crossings” of different kinds including the ever-popular zip lines. Climbers wear harnesses that are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park’s “always locked on” system of interlocking safety clips. Before venturing onto the trails, climbers receive an interactive orientation and practice session.
Non-climbing family and friends are admitted free of charge to share the experience on the ground by following along on the walking path below the courses, relaxing at the picnic tables, and enjoying the community firepit.
The Adventure Park is open to the general public and is located only 15 minutes from downtown Nashville, on about six acres of forest on the grounds of the Gordon JCC, at 801 Percy Warner Blvd in West Meade.
The Park’s friendly staff is available to answer questions and assist all guests from the moment customers arrive until the moment they conclude their climb.
The Adventure Park at Nashville is designed, built, and operated by Outdoor Ventures.
