Legacy Parks Foundation, an East Tennessee non-profit organization, works to ensure that our community enjoys exceptional recreational opportunities, natural beauty and open spaces, and that those assets exist for generations to come. We work collaboratively to preserve our area’s extraordinary natural resources, and to expand parks, trails, and greenways.
