Powell High Landing

Beaver Creek spans 44 miles, nearly the entirety of Knox County – connecting Halls to Powell in north Knoxville and continuing to Solway on the western edge of Knoxville. The watershed winds through five communities before emptying into the Clinch River.

The Beaver Creek Kayak Club and Knox County Stormwater have led the effort to make Beaver Creek an important recreational destination and in the process of making it navigable, they will also be enhancing the water quality of the creek by removing debris.

Legacy Parks helps in the effort by creating access to the creek by acquiring land and constructing accessible docks.

In 2020, Legacy Parks built the first accessible, non-motorized boat dock on Beaver Creek behind Powell High School with funding from Aubrey’s Inc and a grant from TWRA.

Additional access points have been identified so that paddlers can have a navigable float from Halls to Fort Loudoun Lake.
