The Parthenon at Centennial Park.
The Nashville Skyline behind it.

This building is why we are called the Athens of the South. It serves as an Art Museum and is one of the places y'all would need to visit when you come to town. The park is full of beautiful flowers and paths to walk and ride and there is a pond where you can sit and watch duck and geese frolic.

The Kitty Justice is I get to gaze upon it when I go paint.

It's a wonderful place. I visited it too long ago and must again make the 3 hours drive down I-65 again someday soon.

Great picture Di. Do you remember when Harvey's used to have that lit up Christmas nativity scene there?

I am so glad you have seen it and it is impressive. Was the statue of Athena there when you visited? Peace

Yes, that was such a magicial time at Christmas. Too bad the parks department did not buy it and continue the tradition. They still light up the Parthenon with the colored lights but it is not the same without the Nativity Scene. We do have a Gold Christmas ornament and a print with to remember it by. Peace
