    Residing near the University of Tennessee's campus in Downtown-West Knoxville, Tyson Park provides a wide array of recreational opportunities to Knoxvillians. Third Creek Greenway, which connects to Neyland and Bearden Greenways, is a popular place to run, walk, bike or pass through the park.

    The park boasts one of Knoxville's largest accessible playgrounds, two softball fields, 14 tennis courts, 3 large shelters, and accessible restrooms. Tyson Park was also the site for Knoxville's first skate park, which is a Tony Hawk Foundation skatepark. Tony Hawk himself paid a visit to the Knoxville Skate Park in October 2010.
