The Park at Harlinsdale Farm is a 200-acre property that has only recently been opened to the public. Prior to 2007 the property was owned by the Harlin family and used as a breeding farm for Tennessee walking jhorses, a breed of gaited horse known for its flashy movement and unique walking and running style. In the 1940s the park was home of Midnight Sun, a stallion that won two World Grand Championships.

Today visitors can explore the park and the many beautiful old buildings onsite. The main horse stable is located in the center of the property, right across from the main parking area. Be sure to snap a picture of these beautiful buildings, and don’t be surprised if you see a couple having wedding photos taken here - it’s a great place for it!

There are several roads and trails to stroll on, and there is even an equestrian trail. Dogs are welcome. Another feature of the property is a small pond where catch-and-release fishing is allowed. Park hours are everyday from dawn to dusk. The park also boarders the Harpeth River, and there is a river access point nearby for those who wish to kayak, fish, or swim.
