Directions: Take Broadway exit off of I-40 and go north; turn left on Adair Drive and go about three-quarters of a mile; park is on right.

Adair Park was officially completed in 1996. This park provides a great way to escape to the natural side of Knoxville. Adair and Sue Clancy Greenways wind for 1.1 miles through peaceful, lush forested park and along side a creek and pond, where various birds and other Tennessee wildlife may be viewed.

A non-profit organization known as Friends of Adair Park works to maintain the park's beauty and to add improvements over time. The organization's most recent accomplishment for the park is the butterfly garden in the northwest end of the park. To contact Friends of Adair Park, call Larry Cox at 865-216-1065.
