Huddled under the South Knoxville Bridge, Governor Ned McWherter/Riverside Landing Park is perched on the banks of the Tennessee River. The fishing pier is often frequented by anglers out casting their lines. The water also invites paddlers to put-in and explore. Heading downstream, the river bends around the downtown area, passing by the UT campus. The dock at the landing is owned and maintained by the Knoxville Rowing Association. The James White Greenway makes a connection to the Park for walkers, runners, and cyclists.
