Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park serves as a lasting monument to Tennessee’s Bicentennial Celebration, which was June 1, 1996. To honor that history, every Wednesday, park tours are offered to explore the natural, cultural and historical resources of the area and the state. With just a simple walk in the 19-acre park, visitors can experience many facets of Tennessee’s history including a 200-foot granite map of the state, a World War II Memorial, a 95-Bell Carillon, a Pathway of History and the Rivers of Tennessee Fountains. These free, ranger-led tours are offered every Wednesday at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. through December 1, 2014. Tours last approximately one hour. For additional information or to arrange for a private group tour please call the park. (All times are subject to change without notice.)  Meet at: Tennessee Map Plaza - outside the park office under the railroad trestle.

Self-guided tours of the park are also popular. Informational maps are available at the park office or patrons may print the map from our website.
