Legacy Parks was thrilled to successfully apply for a $5 million BlueCross BlueShield Healthy Place grant for improvements to Morningside Park. Working on behalf of the City of Knoxville, Legacy Parks applied for the grant for improvements including accessible trails, fitness stations and playgrounds, a multi-use field and covered pavilions.
The 36-acre park, located adjacent to downtown, is surrounded by university and multi-family apartments, as well as a high-rise community for seniors, including those with disabilities. Two elementary schools are also within walking distance. The park serves diverse groups of residents and these improvements will allow users of all ages and abilities to enjoy the benefits of the park.
Special thanks to Ross/Fowler PC for donating services to create the incredible concept plan.
