Friends of Warner Parks is dedicated to the preservation, protection and stewardship of Percy and Edwin Warner Parks. It works to protect the natural and historical integrity of the area by supporting appropriate recreational activities, maintaining and enhancing its features, and promoting programs that inspire appreciation and conservation of the Parks.

Friends of Warner Parks works closely with Metro Nashville Parks and Recreation to leverage volunteer, membership and philanthropic efforts to care for the Parks. Among other projects, funds raised by Friends of Warner Parks are used to fund programs and staff at the Warner Park Nature Center, restore historic structures, and maintain trails and other park amenities. Friends is a 501(c)3 organization.

Warner Parks are located 9 miles from downtown Nashville and covers 3,180 contiguous acres including Percy Warner Park and Edwin Warner Park. The newly acquired Burch Reserve and Hill Forest properties recently added nearly 500 acres to Edwin Warner Park as a gift from Friends of Warner Parks. Among the stately trees and rolling hills, you’ll forget you’re within city limits at all. As one of the largest municipal natural area parks in the country, Warner Parks boasts amenities, historic and natural landmarks, and other features that make it a top outdoor destination in Middle Tennessee. Warner Parks are owned and managed by the Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation of Nashville and Davidson County.
