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 casting their lines in the hopes of a catch or two. The water also invites paddlers to put-in and explore. Heading downstream, the river bends around the downtown area passing by the University Campus. Upstream, the river extends to its confluence with the French Broad and Holston Rivers. The dock at the landing is owned and maintained by the Knoxville Rowing Association — it's fun to day watch them when they're out on the river practicing. Walkers, runners and cyclists rendezvous at the park from the James White Greenway.
