Connects: Third Creek Greenway, Knoxville Skatepark
Just minutes away from the University of Tennessee’s campus, Tyson Park provides a wide array of recreational opportunities, including accessible playgrounds, two softball fields, 14 tennis courts, 3 large shelters, and accessible restrooms. Tyson Park was also the site for Knoxville's first skate park, which is a Tony Hawk Foundation skatepark. The Third Creek Greenway, which bisects Tyson Park, connects the Neyland and Bearden Village Greenways, providing commuters and recreational users with an east to west thoroughfare.

A Tony Hawk Foundation skatepark, this large concrete skatepark in Tyson Park features bowls, banks, stairs, ledges, and rails. With beginner, intermediate, and advanced features, this is the biggest and best skatepark in East Tennessee. Bikes are not allowed in the peanut pool, and they’ll need park-friendly pegs. The park is open from 8 am to 10 pm and is lighted for nighttime use.
