Brentwood may be a suburban city with SUVs in every driveway, but it’s one of the more walkable places I know.
Before you laugh, have a look at Brentwood’s incredible system of paved paths that wind through city parks and greenways.
You can walk from Tower Park across Concord Road to Concord Park, the piece of land that lies behind Lipscomb Elementary and the Brentwood Library. From there, cross Knox Valley Drive to River Park (the small playground and covered area between the library and YMCA).
A bridge will take you over and along the Little Harpeth River. Eventually, this walkway goes under Wilson Pike and the railroad through the smart addition of tunnels. Voila! You’re now in Brentwood’s flagship, Crockett Park!
Take a breather at the soccer fields, because the trail doesn’t stop there.
I haven’t walked this section myself, so I’m not 100% sure.
You can’t see from the street because greenway access runs unobtrusively through neighborhoods and even not-so-pretty public spaces, such as the recycling center off Wilson Pike.

- Need directions to Brentwood trails? Look for map kiosks in every park. Better yet, print a Brentwood trail system map at home before heading out, as the kiosks are often empty.

I’m a wife, mom, and resident of Brentwood, Tennessee. I love finding fun new things to see and do in the Brentwood area! Most recently, I’ve enjoyed blogging about my pregnancy with baby #3.
