Overlooking the East Tennessee Veterans Cemetery and the beautiful French Broad River, the French Broad Veterans Memorial Park will be a place for community events, family gatherings, special celebrations and private reﬂection to honor our East Tennessee veterans.
Nestled in the forest with a panoramic view of the Smoky Mountains, this park will ﬁll the need for a place where our veteran organizations and families can gather. Currently, the Veterans Cemetery holds three services a day, precluding the ability to host other events on that site. Once constructed, the park will be owned and managed by Knox County.
As a gathering place for all citizens, the Veterans Park will tell the story of the service and sacriﬁce by the veterans and families of our region. With nearly half a million veterans in Tennessee, a powerful story exists to be shared.
