This is the location where John Bell Hood met with his generals to decide whether or not to attack Union forces at Franklin during the Civil War. There's a great bronze map helping show the items you are looking at. That was the coolest thing for me. There are also memorials to the confederate troops who fought in the battle and the generals who died during it. That was the first area of this park, which is farther up the hill. As you go down the hill, there is a really nice paved path to walk on and enjoy the courtryside. If I wasn't interested in the Civil War, I would have enjoyed the park for that wonderful walk itself. There were only two other small groups there when I visited, so it was the perfect place to take a walk at the end of the day, being in nature, burning off the big tasty dinner I'd just had while relaxing.
The parking lot was definitely spacious enough for way more than the amount of people there. Since the walkways were paved, it would have been a decent place to come with someone with some mobility issues. About the only concern was if the road was busy, it might be a challenge to get out of, but I had not problems.
