Construction on the adaptive dock on Beaver Creek behind Powell High School is now underway. This permanent boat launch will allow public non-motorized access to the creek for paddling recreation. Beaver Creek spans nearly the entirety of Knox County – connecting Halls to Powell and continuing to Solway and is a highly appreciated asset of the Powell community. This project accomplishes two important initiatives – creating more access to Beaver Creek and creating access to recreation for all users, including those with disabilities.
In 2017, Legacy Parks created Harrell Road Park – the county’s first stormwater demonstration park which includes two constructed stormwater wetland ponds, a rain garden, native vegetation, a three-quarter mile walking trail and a kayak and canoe launch that connects to the Beaver Creek Water Trail.
