“How to Get a Greenway Walk”
6 p.m., Tuesday, May 5
Meet at Bearden Elementary School, 5717 Kingston Pike
City of Knoxville Greenway Coordinator Donna Young will lead a walk along the Bearden Village Greenway to talk about the challenges involved in getting this urban greenway built and about how other neighborhoods can plan and advocate for greenways.
“Hidden Knoxville Walk”
5:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 6
Meet at the intersection of Summit Hill and Central Avenue
Join Jack Neely, Secret History columnist for Metro Pulse, in a walk to Mechanicsville, Knoxville College, the Warehouse District, and other interesting spots that are all within walking distance of downtown, even if the way to get there may not be obvious.
