Charter Doyle Park


In 2011, Charter Doyle Petsafe Dog Park was opened. Sponsored by Petsafe, the off-leash, fenced-in dog park features separate small and large dog sections, a water fountain with a spout at the canine level, and dog waste stations. The Charter Doyle Petsafe Dog Park was built as part of a $500,000 commitment to build five dog parks within the City of Knoxville and Knox County in an effort toward the initiative of making Knoxville the Most Pet Friendly Community in the nation.

Charter Doyle Park


The land was generously donated in 1984 by the Doyle family to be a neighborhood park. The park is named after Charter E. Doyle who was a squire in the county government before it was reworked as county commission.  Take a stroll on the Mildred Doyle Nature Trail that passes by the Doyle family cemetery. There you'll find a single military tombstone recording the life of John Doyle, dating 1748-1837.  Mildred Doyle, Charter's daughter, was Superintendent of Knox County Schools from 1946-1976.
