Marine Park offers a peaceful setting alongside the Tennessee River. Just over the wooden bridge from the parking and boat launching area is a nice open space dotted with picnic tables. Its a great waterfront setting for playing with the kids, throwing a frisbee or romping with your dog. There's plenty of shoreline access for anglers. Paddlers can enjoy a 3.4 mile (one-way) float over to Volunteer Landing, taking in the downtown waterfront.
