Nashville Parks?????

Recommended Posts

The family and I are headed to Nashville to meet up with my sister and her family coming down from IL for a family get together in a couple of weeks, we are planning to meet at one of the parks in Nashville, I was wondering what the carry laws are for the parks in Nashville?

Best I'm aware, the law around city parks is fuzzy and depends on who manages the park and how it's designated and/or used. I believe cities claim they can post it, where state law says postings aren't applicable unless a school group is nearby.  Search Knoxville and Chilhowee Park.

I don’t know how Metro interprets the law, but here is the pertinent information with a link to the entire statute....

Someone might have more information if you specify what park.
