There’s a new place for family fun in Nashville and we can’t wait to tell you all about it! The Adventure Park at Nashville is a 5-acre zip line and tree-top climbing park located in West Meade, right next door to the Gordon JCC. Unlike similar parks in the area, the Adventure Park at Nashville has several different aerial trail options, making it a fun experience for the beginner and a challenge for even the most seasoned climber. There is even a special area for kids ages 3-6 called the The Adventure Playground! My favorite part? The ability to come in for FREE as an “observer” if you don’t want to climb! Although…after you see how much fun the kids are having…you might not want to be left looking up from the ground. Reservations are encouraged. See our Family Fun Facts below for website info.
As you pull into the park you’ll be happy to find plentiful parking just a short distance from the admissions building. We were immediately greeted by several members of staff who were smiling and ready to answer any questions we had. The check-in process was super smooth thanks to the digital set-up for signing our waivers. The whole admissions process took less than 5 minutes. Such a blessing when you have kiddos who are amped up and ready to get in and start climbing!
After we received our wristbands we were directed to the training area. We had a very friendly staff member show us how the zip line system worked and how to safely use the equipment. She taught us the names of the climbing equipment we would be using and took her time answering all of our questions. After our training session we felt very confident in our ability to tackle the aerial trails! The Adventure Park at Nashville takes safety very seriously and they will spend as much time as needed getting you ready to climb confidently.
This area of the park is for children ages 3-6. All of the climbing cables, rope walls, ziplines, etc. are situated just a few inches off the ground. This gives little ones the ability to build confidence in their climbing skills while staying safe and feeling comfortable. Even if the adults in your group aren’t interested in climbing, you can come in as an “observer” for absolutely free while your kiddos play! There is also a special reduced rate for climbers coming in who only plan to use the Adventure Playground area.
Aerial Adventure Park
There are 12 different trails ranging from beginner to challenging. My 13 year old son tackled the first two levels with ease and then decided to challenge himself with an intermediate trail. He almost made it to the end, but got tripped up on the 3rd to last element and had to have a staff member help him down. He was nervous when he got “stuck”, but the staff immediately calmed his nerves, talked to him the whole time and helped him down within minutes. He’s still kicking himself for not finishing the trail, so I guess we’ll be going back soon to face that challenge head on!
The beginner and intermediate trails will be suitable for most climbers. For those seeking more of a challenge, they have the Black Diamond and Double Black Diamond trails. As one of the staff members told me, “Pretty much if you aren’t challenged on those trails, you might as well join the Marines.”.
Receive a special discount for coming out during the last 3 hours of the day. Later in the day means cooler temps in the summer, beautiful lights in the tree-tops, and a little extra cash in your pocket. This is a great deal!
Glow in the Park
Every other Friday is Glow in the Park at Adventure Park at Nashville! From 5-10pm on event nights the park becomes absolutely magical with the help of laser lights, glow attire, colorful lighting, music and more!
Birthday Parties & Group Events
There are an array of options for having your child’s next birthday party at the Adventure Park at Nashville. Also offered are special rates for Scouting Troops and other groups.

Crystal was born and raised, and now raising a family of her own in Middle Tennessee. She currently lives in Murfreesboro with her husband Glenn, and their three children; Hunter, Grayson, and Hailey.
