Pinkerton Park in Franklin, TN

tinkerbell-playground-pinkerton-park.jpg One of the best city parks in Franklin — for kids — is Pinkerton Park. It’s located on Highway 96, just past the railroad tracks on the East side of downtown Franklin.

Why it’s the best?

Because there are so many signs regulating all the things that adults cannot do, that there’s nothing but fun to be had for the littlest citizens of Franklin.

We’re talking tiny tots here…

One of the best things is the fact that the play yards and climbing things are pretty sophisticated at this park.

We had visitors on the Fourth of July a few years back, and the first park that came to mind to entertain our little niece and nephew was: Pinkerton Park.

Here are some pictures from that day — which involved a boy, a baby, and a water bottle.

This park is a great place to bring the kids for a picnic and has a large playground area. There is a 1 mile paved walking/jogging path which is lighted for early evening use. Cross the Sue Douglas Berry Memorial pedestrian bridge to connect to Historic Downtown Franklin. Fort Granger is a short hike from the park. BabyZone

This just so happens to be the same park where we carved our names in a tree and we also spelled “Nashville” in leaves there (…a corny tradition we have before we move to new places).
