one of our favorite places to spend an afternoon here in our new city is cumerland park. we call it teletubbie park because it reminds us of the silly old show with those colorful alien-like characters. the park is right near downtown next to the cumberland river and right below nashville's famous pedestrian bridge. it's impressively clean, modern and full of fun things to do. the rolling ground is part astroturf/part live grass and it has a large concrete area with fountains for splashing. these photos are a few weeks old, while the weather was still cool and the fountains were not yet turned on. we picked up lunch and picnicked with some of our sweet friends and their equally sweet kids.
now that summer has officially begun, i hear the fountains are on and we can't wait to visit again with swimsuits, towels and sunscreen in tow.
