love the park

I love the park for the ducks, water etc. However, it is getting to the point that it does not feel safe.

is the walking suspension bridge that takes you over the south fork of the Holston River to Long Island. Just keep from walking at a steady pace and you'll be fine. there's an important marker on your left once you reach the island.

The park isn't very big but it's nice to put your feet in the sand. This is really just a nice place to walk and let the kids ride their bikes or scooters. The swinging bridge is a nice touch as well.

the river is always going have its natural beauty but it stops at the bank . The park itself has an abandoned look with trash littering the the bank and old park features from 1976 bicentennial that look like they mite be waiting on the tricentennial celebration for future generations to dig up and ask what was this place ....

We bring our daughters here every once in a while if we're in the neighborhood. Where the playground is the path & picnic tables are always covered in duck poop, so I wouldn't recommend eating here. The playground equipment is a little outdated. They're definitely better parks in the area.

This park has a nice view of the river, but there are extremely questionable people lurking around. There have been prostitution arrests in the past. I would not go there alone or near dark.

Nice walking path or softball fields if you play within the league. There is also a swinging bridge. Nice river to fish but other than that, it doesn't off much. There is no playground for small children or much for them to do besides feed geese/ducks. There are signs posted asking you not to do this but people do it... More

Beautiful park especially for photos and family time. We also went to Domtar Park for a baseball tournament and it is a great sports facility. Too Bad the tournament got rained out!
