Scope and Contents

Architectural and design plans, the Gateway Pavilion at Volunteer Landing. (Knoxville Regional Visitors’ Center) “The site of the Holston Treaty, Volunteer Landing was destined to become a waterfront destination that residents and visitors of Knoxville could enjoy daily. In 1988, a Waterfront Task Force was established to study and develop recommendations for the protection, enhancement, and development of the seven-mile stretch of waterfront space along the Tennessee River. One of the Task Force's main objectives was to establish a waterfront Greenway system to that would include landscaping, historical markers, lighting, maintenance policies, and a clean-up campaign. From these objectives, Volunteer Landing became a three phase project that included public and private developments. The project broke ground in 1995, consisting primarily of public park improvements. Today, Volunteer Landing is a great place to take a quiet jog or walk along the waterfront or to host a small to medium sized event. In 2007, the Public Building Authority assumed management responsibility for the Landing.”
