OutdoorKnoxville.com is provided to you by Legacy Parks Foundation, a non-profit organization which works to assure that our community enjoys exceptional recreational opportunities, natural beauty and open spaces, and that those assets exist for generations to come. Our mission is to leave East Tennessee better than we found it.
Legacy Parks Foundation launched two initiatives geared to make Knoxville a recreational destination for East Tennessee. Taking full advantage of our area’s exceptional outdoor assets, the Outdoor Knoxville initiative promotes outdoor recreation as an integral component to the health and economic vitality of the community. It begins with the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center, the Outdoor Knoxville website, and the annual Outdoor KnoxFest.
The Knoxville Urban Wilderness initiative begins with the 1,000-forested acres along Knoxville’s downtown waterfront that includes ten parks, more than forty miles of recreational trails, four civil war sites, incredible views and unparalleled natural features. Legacy Parks Foundation is championing this unique asset as a premier outdoor experience for visitors and residents alike by creating trails, connecting and expanding parks, creating an easily-navigated system of signs and kiosks, programming events and promoting opportunities for everyone to get out and play.
Through donations of land and money to Legacy Parks, we are helping create trails and greenways, preserve our open spaces and parks, and to provide river access throughout our region. You can help by becoming a Friend of Legacy Parks today.
Legacy Parks Foundation has their offices in the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center. The Center provides maps, flyers and other outdoor resources to help everyone get out and play. The Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center offers a lovely community room, theater and patio with a waterfall setting, which are available for a nominal fee for community and club events. Centrally located with easy access to the greenway and the Tennessee River, the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center makes outdoor recreation more accessible to everyone.
