World's Fair Park, Knoxville Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great park right next to downtown. It's nice and quiet. There's a lot going on in the area and World's Fair Park is a great place to go pretty much any time of the day and any day of the week.

  • Such a great scene! And going in the sunsphere you can get a great view of Knoxville,

  • Fountain is amazing. Lots of nice events here throughout the seasons. Don't swim in the reflecting pools while the bike security is watching.

  • So pretty, and going up to the observation deck gives you a fun look into the past. Learned a lot :)

  • What a fun place! One could spend all day in the area. Don't forget to ride the elevator up into the golden ball, visit the art museum and fort kid, and ride the free trolley after grabbing some home made chocolate from the chocolate factory. Finish the evening with a nice walk to dinner and shopping at market square.
