Lakes and Rivers

Middle Tennessee is rich in lakes, rivers, and streams creating vast opportunities for boating, water sports, fishing, camping, hunting, hiking and other kinds of recreation. Several of the most prominent lakes reservoirs really are operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, including JPercy Priest Lake and Old Hickory Lake just outside of Nashville. Other large lakes in the region include Center Hill Lake, Dale Hollow Lake, Lake Barkley, and Kentucky Lake.
The dams that form these lakes help with flood control and provide hydroelectric power.

The Cumberland River flows right through downtown Nashville.  River Front Park is a popular location during the summer time for concerts, the 4th of July fireworks show, as well as many other events set right on the shoreline looking across the river at the Tennessee Titans stadium.
