  • It took years for the site to be redeveloped, but it is now so, so much prettier than before. I love the huge pond that creates a waterfall effect over near the convention center. I love the little se...  more »
  • It was a little cloudy but fun to go to the observation deck and walk around at see the history. Park is also pleasant. Since it was so cold, not many visitors. If you are in Knoxville for other thing...  more »

  • A beautifully manicured park that you can promenade through. There's a paved walkway throughout, a clean restroom, a small well kept playground, a water feature, and a huge covered pavilion. It's quite nice in the spring, summer, and fall. I do not recommend the winter, because it's not as frequented which is a bit sketchy. Otherwise, this is a safe clean park.
  • A great venue for all types of events! There is always something to see. The Sun Sphere is a great attraction for your visiting friends and family. The observation deck provides a wonderful bird's eye view of Knoxville while giving you bits of information on what you are seeing. The best part is that there is no change for this experience!
  • I've visited this park while in Mocksville on a business trip. I even made of log about it on our YouTube channel. It has interesting history. I recommend going to the observation deck and going around and looking at all of the kiosks any information. You get a good feel for Knoxville and it's history. It doesn't cost anything to go to the observation deck.
  • Great park right next to downtown. It's nice and quiet. There's a lot going on in the area and World's Fair Park is a great place to go pretty much any time of the day and any day of the week.
  • Great place to take a walk. My niece loves the playground!
