On the Bearden Village Greenway

Bearden Village Greenway is a westward extension of Third Creek Greenway. It was designed to connect West High School, Bearden Adaptive Center and Bearden Elementary School to each other along Sutherland Ave.

Bearden Village Greenway is punctuated by many historic markers that tell stories about Bearden Village's history.

Bearden Village Greenway is also part of the Knoxville Track Club's CrossKnox Race, which runs from Haley Heritage Square in East Knoxville all the way to Bearden Elementary School in West Knoxville.
