Suttree Landing Park Wins 2 Awards 
Suttree Landing Park on the South Waterfront

City officials, South Knoxville residents and outdoor adventurers are downright giddy about Suttree Landing Park, the City's first new park to open in more than a decade. The 8¼-acre linear park within Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness boasts festival lawns, a children’s playground, a put-in for kayakers, accessible river overlooks with picnic tables, and a public riverwalk. It opened last November.

But on Tuesday, the park officially acquired some braggin' rights.

Within a span of just a few hours, Suttree Landing was recognized with two awards - an Orchid Award from Keep Knoxville Beautiful and an Honor Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC).

ACEC Award, March 2017

KKB's Orchid Award, March 2017

KKB selected the park as the winner in its Open Spaces category. ACEC's award - accepted by Dawn Michelle Foster, the City's Director of Redevelopment, and Jeff Beckett with Cannon and Cannon Inc. - was in the Studies, Research and Consulting category.

If you haven't visited Suttree Landing Park yet, c'mon out! Trees and flowers are blooming, and the weather today is sunny and warm. Take in some of the best waterfront views in Knoxville!
