A must stop if you are traveling through Knoxville. Tons of free parking within a few blocks. Great views and a place for the little ones to burn of a little energy. The splash pad/ fountains were awesome , we were not prepared for that...More

This park was really nice- free parking, clean, and a nice water feature that you can dip into when it's hot. It wasn't really big, but cool to see the Suntower and walk around for a little bit.

In the hot summer months its a great place for the kids to be able to play, either at the fountains, the playground, or up at Fort Kidd. Plenty of open space to run and play, and WFP is pet friendly, too. The observation deck...More

Not many city can claim a "World Fair Park" as a destination. Wheather you want to see the iconic Suntower or stroll the trails, the park is in great condition with waterfall, lake and concert venue. Stop by the museum of arts or just hangout.

Yes, dogs are welcomed at the park. They may need to be on a leash if they like to run around a lot, but, if they stick with you, it should be okay to go without a leash.
