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

The Alex Haley statue, one of the tallest statues of an African-American in the country, towers over Morningside Park as one of the main trailheads for the greenway.
