FORT KID IS NOW OPEN!

This elaborate urban playground is in Downtown Knoxville located between the Victorian Houses and the Knoxville Museum of Art.

With its thousands of square feet of slides, rides and swings, Fort Kid is a popular destination for school, church and daycare groups. Picnic tables and benches are available for parents to watch the wee ones play. Awesome view of the Sunsphere and is a short distance from World's Fair Park which also includes a playground, water play fountains and open space.

Fort Kid is maintained by the Public Building Authority (PBA).
