What a great day!

Kids played in the splash pad, we sun bathed on the lawn, the sunsphere is a beautiful picture in the background, all in all it was a really nice day with the family.

A lovely park surrounding beautiful natural-style water features including ponds and fountains plus the fun Sunsphere where you ride up the elevator for 360 degree views of Knoxville.

Not sure what I'd do at this park except attend events. I did a triathlon that started & ended here so I enjoyed that, but otherwise, I'd spend my time in Knoxville biking or running or hiking, or visiting Market Square.

We have had fun just walking around in the park. There isn't necessarily anything to do here, although our son did go to a beer festival here one fall and enjoyed it.

This is a nice park area to walk and spend time with family and friends. You can walk along the riverwalk or play in the fountains. The sun sphere is an iconic landmark for the worlds fair area. You are also in walking distance to downtown area, and UT campus.

Was at the convention center when I saw this park and decided to have a walk there in the cool evening. Saw a lot of people playing with the water. Nice big area for kids to run and have fun. Went up to have a bird's eye view of Knoxville. Worth a visit.

Great park to have a stroll through. Beautiful landscape and calming waterfalls. I especially enjoyed the knockout roses. Very close to downtown Knoxville. Definitely worth your time. Enjoy!!!

The park is pretty nice to walk around and also take some pictures. We have been here while the sun came out and it got real warm. You can also ride up to the top for free and get a great view over the park and the city. The glass though is a little dark and dirty but we still... More

I like the memorial for our veterans most of all. Next in line would have to be the openness of the park in general. Third, the River effect water fall on the side of Cumberland Ave. + the continuous flowing fountain near the big ball. Last but not least going inside of the big ball itself. Tis sweet!!! If you...
