Fountain City Park Reviews & Ratings
Nice place to be honest. Not too far from my home, easy to walk to. I've made a lot of good and not so great memories here but it's probably my favorite park ever. This park and the fountain I feel are the heart of this city and I know I'll definitely miss seeing them if I ever move anywhere else.
Fun park for kids. There is 3 sets of slides and swings for different ages. There is also monkey bars and a slider too for the adventurous ones. There is also a man made creek with pebble bottoms (safe for no shoes) that I will be taking the kids back to play in. There is also alot of shade surrounding the play area for us tires AF parents. Not the biggest and not the best, but it scores high for me as my kids ❤💙ed it! I'll be back for certain.
Old dirty, broken down equipment. Weeds growing up all over. There was a questionable group of people sitting in a secluded area hiding what they were doing. The one nice thing is the small creek running around the park area. My 2yr old enjoyed playing in it.
It's time to get with the program. This park needs significantly brighter lighting and more safety features. With new social gaming, adults and teens are at the park well after sundown, and they deserve to be safe. Park hours should be extended and new lighting and outdoor charging benches like Pellissippi state has. We, your 30-40 somethings, will donate to see this park be made safer for nighttime game players and walkers. It's not the 50s anymore. People are out after dark, just like Market Square.
Fountain City Park is a great place to have good outdoor fun for all. Go there have a picnic, watch some ducks, walk a few laps, catch some Pokemon, go swinging take another walk. I could easily spend all day here. Oh and with luck you could find this..
