A one-mile city park sits along the bank of the Tennessee River, providing a nice place to walk or bring the family.
At the eastern end of the park there is a playground and a statue symbolizing the Treaty of the Holston, which took the land on which Knoxville sits away from the Cherokee. This is where Tennessee riverboats depart.
Farther west is another playground and a series of fountains, perfect for romping around in on a hot summer day. At the western end of the park is the ticket booth for the Three Rivers Rambler train.
There are several commercial marinas and restaurants along the park. The best way to get here is to take the pedestrian bridge over Neyland Drive, which departs from the southwestern corner of the Knoxville City/County Building along Walnut Street.
