“Its not a typical park - be careful”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Its hard to write a fair review of Riverfront Park. One would want to write a nice review, but the others before me pretty much hit the nail on the head. The word nasty pretty much decribes this park and it really is nothing special. On a positive side, those who walk the green belt, pass right through it on their way to the North Fork of the Holston River. The river views are pretty. However, this park draws to it people who probably do not write reviews or who have a computer to see the reviews it gets. It is un supervised and the bikes on the path can be disruptive. I would question its safety in the evening or early morning. If you need a park and a picnic area avoid this place and go to either Bays Mountain or Warriors Path State Park, Both are safe, both have things to do and both are clean.

“Access to Greenbelt is Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

Greenbelt is accessible at this location and Netherland Inn there too. Very small playground meant for pre-schoolers. Small picnic area. Cross walking bridge to Cherokee Island for fun of exploring that area on foot.

“Great place to rip stick!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

Great little hills for riding a ripstick. Plus, it is right next to the river so it is super pretty.
