Radnor Lake State Natural Area is located just south of downtown Nashville. The 85 acre lake was originally constructed a reservoir for steam powered locomotives in the early 1900’s. In 1973 Radnor Lake became Tennessee’s first natural area with the help of state lawmakers and numerous local supporters. Radnor Lake now sits in the middle of a nearly 1300 acre park managed by Tennessee Department of Enviornment and Conservation.
We at Radnor Lake and Tennessee State Parks are excited to be participating in National Moth Week and invite everyone to come visit us on July 27. For more information call the park office at 615-373-3467 or visit the Radnor lake sites:
