I would not put it up with the major battleships, so visit just for a picnic park or if you are really interested in delving into all the local battles of the civil war.

Great little park with memorials and a bronze relief map showing the battle of Franklin. At the top you can observe what the southern generals observed prior to the battle. A must if you're following the battle of Franklin Civil war "trail".

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...More

I certainly wouldn't put this at the top of my "to visit" list but it's a quaint little park on a hill with some good Civil War history. If you're in Franklin and interested in the Civil War, I'd say it's worth taking an hour...More
