It is a beautiful place to run/walk with lots of shade and sidewalks. There is a nice playground for the kids and a War Memorial of the East Tennessee Veterans.

This was a very clean park and a great walk for us. The veterans memorial was awesome. The walk over the bridge was beautiful.

The World's Fair Park is a nice little park, with some walking paths and a water feature. It connects to several of what they call Greenways, paved paths that you can walk, run or ride a bike. Aside from the Sunsphere, which is a definite must, there is little to do in the park besides walk around.

We really enjoyed our day at World's Fair Park. The sunsphere was a tad disturbing to me so while family enjoyed the view from the top, I enjoyed my view of the fountain. We all met back up for selfies at the photo spot left over from the DI event that weekend. We enjoyed playing in the splash pad, even... More

Free, and when we were there parking was free for 4 hours. View from sphere was nice. Interesting facts to read about when up there. Park was clean. Play area and splash fountains for the kids to play in.

It's a neat park nestled inside the city. It would have been great to see some live music in the amphitheater. We wanted to go up in the sunsphere but we couldn't because we had a pet with us, it would have been great to see the view of the city from up there. Not a lot of parking available... More
