The Story Behind Knoxville's First "Water Trail"
Knoxville has many greenways and parks and hiking trails, but its first water trail opened last year. The project took years to come to fruition, and is a model of what can be done not just as a recreational feature, but as an example of stormwater management and land reclamation. It’s part of a larger initiative to bring awareness to storm water concerns in Knox County. I spoke to Carol Evans with the Legacy Parks Foundation about the importance of water quality and outdoor recreation in Knoxville.
