While it is pretty here and can be a great spot for festivals and pictures it can be pretty plain on an average day! I wouldn't necessarily walk through here at night, but in the day it can be a nice place to toss a ball or to read a book!

I was extremely excited to visit this area before taking the trip. I would love to have attended a World's Fair and wish there was a modern day worlds fair. Visiting the Sunsphere was the only thing I preplanned and wanted to do while visiting Knoxville. It was neat to view 360 around city below - had a few trivia... More

Take a picnic to the Worlds Fair Park and relax on one of the many manicured lawns. Let the kids get wet at the very nice splash pad and playground. Go up into the Sunsphere and look at the views and before you leave get a free sample of chocolate from the chocolate factory and visit the museum. All of... More

There was water and grass and gardens. What more could you want in a greenspace? It was beautiful to walk through and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

World's Fair Park host a lot of event through out the year from 5k races to chili cook-offs. I took many walks through here as the greenery is very nice. It's also quite convenient to both downtown Knoxville and the University of Tennessee so you are close to great food options from here as well!

We enjoy attending many different events at the World's Fair Park. Kids love the fountains to cool off in the summer time and the playground is great for all ages. Our favorite events here are the Chili cookoff and the Kahuna Wing fest.

This is a beautiful area in Knoxville for relaxing, taking photographs or just browsing around. It has many features that would make for a leisurely afternoon.

The park is really nice but the Sun Sphere is in really bad condition and needs a lot of repairs. Knoxville should be ashamed of the way they have let it get so run down. I wouldn't send anyone of my friends to visit it.

Great place to rest, enjoy the sun, let the kids cool down in the fountain water feature (no the pond), lay out in the field... whatever. Safe and clean.
