Great place for an afternoon walk. Love to run through the fountains, and take pictures of sunsphere, and water areas. It is family friendly and pet friendly. Good place to walk, or run. Also, visit the sunsphere since its nearby!

The Knoxville Convention Center was a great spot for my daughter's volleyball tournament. It's clean and well maintained and had nice food and drink options available. Bathrooms were very clean and staff were friendly. Very convenient to downtown hotels.
