If you can still use a place to beat the heat as summer winds down, stop by Cumberland Park along the Nashville riverfront between the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge and the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge. The park is open daily from dawn to 11 pm with Sprayground Hours from May 24th – September 1st being 9am – 7pm from Monday through Saturday, and noon – 6pm on Sunday.
Cumberland Park is part of the larger Riverfront Revitalization Plan and includes play space for children and families that include play structures and a waterpark as well as an outdoor amphitheater that accommodates 1,200 people for it’s frequent events during the summer months along.
Entering the park you are treated to a view of the Nashville skyline as well as the Cumberland River.

Entering the park area itself you’ll find “The Hollow”, a nature play area that includes rolling hills along with a sand play area, bouncing pad, and a green maze and tandem see-saw for parents and kids.
Connecting the Hollow to the splash pad area is a “cloud bridge” that has rain curtains.
Cumberland Park has a fantastic location with it’s view of the Nashville skyline. It’s a great, free, park and splashpad that you can take the kids to cool off in the summer. Being located near the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge, you can walk across and grab an ice cream afterwards at Mike’s Ice Cream on Broadway in downtown Nashville before heading home!
