Dragon Park in Nashville – a Haven for Children and Art Lovers Near Vanderbilt!

Affectionately known as “Dragon Park”, Fannie Mae Dees Park in the Vanderbilt area of Nashville, TN, has been delighting children and art lovers alike for over 25 years!  Located at 2400 Blakemore Ave. in the 37212 zip code, Dragon Park is a small open air park with a playground and a huge mosaic dragon!

If you look closely on the dragon, a mosaic masterpiece, you will see loads of characters, from animals to people to magical sea creatures!  It was the creation of Pedro P. Silva in the late 70s and was spruced up in 1999.  As a child, I can remember climbing on the magical monster and I love to see children still continuing to enjoy him now!
