Lock 2

Lock 2 Park has some interesting history, and unlike it’s sister, has actually been invested in. A refresher from the Lock 1 Post: In the 1890s, the locks and dams were constructed along the Cumberland to help steamships navigate the waters. But it was expensive, didn’t work well, and steamship utilization drops.

Nashville Parks and Rec took over managing it this park in 1956. It has 5.73 acres, overlooking the Cumberland River. It was actually hard for me to get a good picture of the river, because there were so many people fishing! This is the first Nashville park we've hit that had people fishing, which was fun to see. It has a playground, a boat launch, and the original lock keeper’s house.
