Directions: Greenway is in the downtown section. Take James White Parkway South to Neyland Drive. Greenway is on the shoreline of Tennessee River, near Gateway Marina.

The James White Greenway is located parallel to the Tennessee River connecting directly to the Neyland Greenway (3.0 miles) at the mouth of First Creek (at Ruth's Chris Steak House) and continuing east to connect to Governor Ned McWherter Riverside Landing Park under the James White Parkway bridge. There, it links north to Morningside Greenway (1.6 miles). The City has plans to continue this greenway across the James White Bridge and eventually to connect to the Will Skelton Greenway (3.62 miles) at Island Home Park.

The James White Greenway runs along the Tennessee River for its entire one-mile stretch, offering a scenic experience for its patrons, as well as the opportunity to view wildlife that may be seen along waterfronts in East Tennessee.

James White Greenway is also part of the CrossKnox Race, running from Haley Heritage Square in East Knoxville all the way to Bearden Elementary School in West Knoxville.
