About:

THIS SITE HAS BEEN FILLED FOR THE 2017-2018 RECRUITMENT CYCLE.

Knox County Parks mission is to provide and preserve quality parks with recreation opportunities for all and to be an innovative leader in delivering quality parks and programs. In doing so, they have facilitated the use of outdoor facilities through the creation of various recreational sports leagues, events that encourage health and fitness, and most importantly implemented programs and events that create fun, safe outdoor atmosphere for all residents of Knox County to enjoy.

In 2015, Knox County Parks and Rec worked diligently to bring Open Streets for the first time to Knoxville. This event creates one-mile stretch of street, closed to all motorized traffic, allowing revelers a day of shopping, playing, exercising and socializing all on foot or two wheels!
