It was a beautiful Saturday morning when my husband and I decided to join our friends Corey and Casey to the park. It had been rainy and gloomy for a few days so we figured like it was a sunny day, why not? We ended up going to a nearby park called Billy Dunlop Park (more information to come) located in Clarksville, Tennessee. It was a little muddy but beautiful.
When we arrived we let the girls play at the playground. Shortly after we decided to hit the trail. It’s a short trail but very pretty, surrounded by trees. The trail then continues by the side of the river into the woods at the other end of the park. It is a fairly small park but definitely a place for a fun family outing.
About The Park
The park is filled with things to do from the walking trails, the playground, to even kayaking and swimming at the Red River during the warm summer days. They have events throughout the year and pavilions that you can rent out for your own events such as birthdays. This park also has some amazing spots to take portraits at. One including the bridge that is this park’s landmark.
Here’s a list of all of the amenities.
