C is For Cumberland

Nashville’s Cumberland River:Fun Right Through Downtown

They say that you can navigate the Cumberland river all the way down to the mighty Mississippi and on down to the Gulf. The Cumberland river where it bisects Nashville is a medium size river, not too treacherous or fast.

While it had a bad reputation in the past, the Cumberland River Compact has worked hard to restore the river and now it’s so clean you can even take a stand-up paddleboard tour.

  1. Glad you included the Cumberland river park splash pad, but you should also include that they often have free music and events at that park as well. You can even hang out by the water and catch a full performance of the artists over at the Ascend Ampitheatre across the river from you.
