Things to Do

Radnor Lake State Park covers the southernmost part of Oak Hill at Forest Hills’ eastern boundary. This expansive 1,368-acre park is the largest protected natural area in Tennessee. Close to eight miles of hiking trails run through the pristine woods surrounding scenic Radnor Lake. This beautiful natural area is also home to many varieties of local wildlife, including beavers, bobcats, coyotes, minks, otters, and white-tailed deer. Radnor Lake is also an excellent birdwatching spot. The Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center at Radnor Lake State Park has an elevated boardwalk offering a bird’s eye view over the woods. Residents of the aviary include great horned owls, black vultures, American gold eagles, and bald eagles. The Tennessee Governor’s Mansion was originally built as a private residence for insurance magnate William Ridley Willis in the 1920s. This grand Georgian-style mansion in Oak Hills has been the official residence of the Governor of Tennessee since 1949. Guided tours are available of the mansion and its garden and arboretum. Forest Hills’ Richland Country Club boasts an outstanding 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and a clubhouse with a family dining room, a taproom, a golf pro shop, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Gorgeous Bison Meadow is a 2.5-acre green space in Forest Hills featuring blooming wildflowers. On Forest Hills’ western boundary, the Edwin and Percy Warner Parks together cover an area of more than 3,100 acres. Miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding run through the Warner Parks’ attractive scenery of forests, fields, and outlooks. Percy Warner Golf Course is a scenic 9-hole course nestled amid Percy Warner Park’s greenery. The Warner Parks also has an equestrian center, cross-country running courses, a dog park, and sports fields. Just north of the Warner Parks, Cheekwood Estate and Gardens features 55 acres of gorgeous botanical gardens surrounding a grand 1920s Georgian Revival mansion. The mansion houses an art museum with an impressive collection of works from prominent American artists such as Andy Warhol, Robert Ryman, and Marylyn Dintenfass.
