The city of Knoxville has an extensive and growing system of greenways, including the Holston River Greeway. The greenways follow natural water courses, traverse open spaces and parklands, and link neighborhoods and business districts.
On the west end of the trail system, a section of the pathway known as the Jean Teague Greenway runs through West Hills Park, a 14-acre expanse dotted with sport fields, basketball and tennis courts, playgrounds and picnic areas. The much larger Sequoyah Park, which hugs the north bank of the Tennessee River offers rolling hills, scenic landscapes, and exercise facilities.
In the city's northwest neighborhoods, the greenway runs through Victor Ashe Park. The 120-acre recreational amenity provides soccer and football fields, sand volleyball courts, a large playground, fishing areas, and a dog park.
A fun sight to see along the Third Creek Greenway section of the trail is a 230-foot-long, 14-foot-high mural which features beautifully painted freshwater mussels which are native to the Tennessee River.
The city’s First Creek Greenway is complete in two disconnected sections: the Upper First Creek Greenway and the Lower First Creek Greenway. The northernmost of the two offers almost a mile of paved pathway, including a loop through First Creek Park. The shorter southern segment spans a half mile connecting Caswell Park and the Ashley Nicole Dream Playground, an award-winning fully accessible playground.
Parking is available in several of the parks reached by Knoxville's trail system, including:
