“Just Another City Park”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

For anyone tempted to take a detour and visit this area, skip it. Unless you are into the nostalgia of the Sunsphere (which is showing its age), there's really nothing here but your standard fare of a fountain (very nice), playground grassy picnic spot, ampitheater and waterfront area. Although the area is decently maintained, it needs the excitement of a convention center event or outdoor festival to make it come alive. From what I learned from the locals, that only ahppens acouple times a year (that is, way too infrequently). Leave this for the locals to enjoy.

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

A little dull. A nice place to walk around if you have nothing to do on a Sunday afternoon. Pretty foundations.

“World's Fair Park, Knoxville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

An excellent park to spend the afternoon with the kids or just kick back and relax. They have a water spray / splash area and a grassy field for the kids to play. They also have a memorial for veterans. Definitely worth a visit if in the downtown area.

“Nice park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is a nice little park if you want a day off, or just to stroll around on your lunch break. Try the South's Finest Chocolate, or make a point to come out for the Dogwood Art Festival.
