The City of Knoxville section of the Knox/Blount Greenway is the first phase of a plan to provide a pedestrian connection from Knoxville south through Knox and Blount counties to the Great Smoky Mountains.
The two-mile Knoxville section spans from the south side of the J.E. “Buck” Karnes Bridge and ends at Knox County’s Marine Park. It follows the shore of the Tennessee River for most of its route and passes the University of Tennessee Practice Golf Course and the Cherokee Farm Innovation Campus.
