Sam Duff Park


Sam Duff Memorial Park provides the surrounding neighborhoods a recreational play area, within a natural setting. Once a football and track facility for nearby Young High School the area now consists of Sam Duff Greenway. It is a favorite for runners and walkers.

A wide array of amenities include a tennis court, two basketball courts, four pickleball courts, and a large playground. There are picnic facilities and restrooms. A new mulch surface trail connector to the park was created in 2018 by the City's Greenway Crew. The trail provides a more convenient entrance to the park for residents coming from Greenwood Avenue and gives access to a wooded part of the park property that was previously inaccessible.


HISTORY OF PARK


Sam A. Duff was a long-time principal of Knoxville’s former Young High. The football field at this park was home to the Young High football team.
