The new parking lot is between the main park road and the Tennessee River and wraps around the outfields of the upper baseball fields. The driveway to the new parking lot is located adjacent to the parking lot for the Hank Rappé Playground.
The new trail section runs from the main park road to the riverfront trail, beside the new parking lot. A new picnic area is also open in the area between the parking lot and the Tennessee River.
Marble Hall and the Marble Pavilion opened to the public earlier this year. Both facilities and the Lakeshore picnic shelter can be reserved for special events and private gatherings. The TVA Pavilion and the Hecht Pavilion can also be reserved for private events if they are not being used by Knox Youth Sports for sports-related activities. All of the facilities are open on a first come, first served basis unless reserved or being used for the youth sports programs.
