Billy Dunlop Park, Clarksville, TN

Billy Dunlop Park, Clarksville, Tennessee

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.
