Clarksville offers residents and visitors a variety of recreational and leisure activities. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the Cumberland River Walk, Dunbar Cave State Park and the Land Between the Lakes, all of which are within a short driving distance.
The Cumberland River Walk is an urban walk that had been redesigned over the years and offers a park setting perfect for a weekend stroll. Visitors walk along a stretch of the Cumberland River to a bridge leading to what will be a further extension of the walk. Fishing, hiking, jet skiing and other water recreation can be enjoyed here.
Outdoor enthusiasts will love the 110-acre natural area located inside Dunbar Cave State Park. Honeycombed by caves and sinkholes, the most prominent being Dunbar Cave, this 8.1 mile cave has historical, natural, archaeological and geological significance. Excavations have revealed that man has populated this cave for thousands of years, drawn to it by its constant stream flow and natural air conditioning. Today, activities such as hiking, fishing and public 18-hole golf course can be enjoyed in this natural land preserve.
