James White Greenway
James White Greenway offers a beautiful
pathway along the Tennessee River.
1623 Riverside Dr.
Directions: Greenway is in the downtown section. Take James White Parkway South to Neyland Drive. Greenway is on the shoreline of Tennessee River, near Gateway Marina.
The James White Greenway is located parallel to the Tennessee River
connecting directly to the Neyland Greenway (3.0 miles) at the mouth
of First Creek (at Ruth's Chris Steak House) and continuing east to connect to Governor Ned McWherter Riverside Landing Park under the James White
Parkway bridge. There, it links north to Morningside Greenway (1.6 miles). The City has plans to continue
this greenway across the James White Bridge and eventually to connect to
the Will Skelton Greenway (3.62 miles) at Island Home Park.
The James White Greenway runs along the Tennessee River for its entire one-mile stretch, offering a scenic experience for its patrons, as well as the opportunity to view wildlife that may be seen along waterfronts in East Tennessee.
James White Greenway is also part of the City's CrossKnox 15k Race, running from Haley Heritage Square in East Knoxville all the way to Bearden Elementary School in West Knoxville.
