Stunning and beautiful grounds to walk through with water features and a memorial. Sunsphere is free to travel up for a great view. Parking is tricky - either park in the lot that extends from the Knoxville Art Museum or park downtown in one of the parking garages and walk over via the pedestrian bridge. I'd recommend parking downtown in the garage so you can visit the amazing Market Square and graffiti alley too.

I love going to the sunsphere and walking around. I've taken several Engagement Photos here. The scenery is very nice, with the waterfall & waterfront to the old railroad tresses. I've lived here all my life, but I've not yet gone up in the Sunsphere. I hope to do this very soon.

This appears to be great on paper however when you get there the parking isn't labeled well and is difficult to locate. The sun sphere looked super cool but we didn't get to go into it due to parking. The town itself was tore up with construction wouldn't make it my pass through town again.

Nice place to take a break and walk around after driving for hours. Felt safe. Free parking. Can't beat.
