“This is must see for families. There are several play areas at this little park for all ages/abilities. In the center of the park is a sculpture of a dragon that was built by Pedro Silva and decorated by local artists and Nashville volunteers. It is wonderful to climb on and great for family pictures. Fannie Mae Dees Park is often referred to as “Dragon Park,” thanks to Pedro Silva’s sea serpent which was erected in the 70s, and features hundreds of personal designs–including faces, birds, alien creatures, flowers and animals–all made of cut or chipped tiles painted by local artists. Over several months in 1999 (and once again restored recently), neighborhood volunteers gave the beloved reptile much-needed repairs and polish, making him as handsome–and climbable–as ever.”
