Nothing fancy, good to visit if your downtown or prior to catching hockey or football game. Small walk around the downtown area, can walk up to many location, near the Hilton Hotel.

Beautiful location to hang out with family, friends and pets! Our community has really made this a nice place to visit. The Sun Sphere is there too! This is a place you can't miss if you visit Knoxville!

Check it out - great walkways, waterfalls, trees, and events in the middle of the city. Nice place to get outside and enjoy a beautiful day.

A huge open park with beautiful scenery and the Sunsphere, World's Fair Park is a great place to go to play games, go on a picnic, take the kids, walk the dog, go jogging, visit the war memorial, or just go to view the sites!

World's Fair Park is a must visit! It is so peaceful and beautiful! I spend a lot of time walking around the pond and the water fountain area is a MUST! I loved going in the fountains when I was little and I still do! If you really want to see the park full, come during the 4th! It seems... More

We were staying very near to the park at a conference, so it was wonderful to get out every night and just walk around the park. Being in November, it was very quiet, but I especially liked that. I'm sure it must be a great spot in the summer!

I read another review that dings this beautiful park because there isn't any readily available parking. Yes, the park is gorgeous and peaceful - springled with the delightful laughing of children playing in the fountains - but getting to see it is somewhat of a pain. There is public parking a few blocks away near the Museum of Art but,... More

What a great park. This was the perfect setting for a perfect proposal for my daughters fiancé to propose. With the gorgeous waterfall in the backdrop, it was simply beautiful.

We went for the day to Knoxville from Gatlinburg, but you can't park anywhere. I went in a mile long circle around the park, and everything is permit parking. The tow truck company had someone sitting there waiting for me to get out of the car to make $200+. The other enormous mistake I made is going on a Saturday... More

We have a few favorite stops when we visit downtown. We love to take our boys (ages 2 & 12) to Fort Kid play ground, it is the coolest play ground around, and unlike any others! We love to have a picnic at the fountains while the kids play in the water, and always love going to observation deck inside... More
