The Kingsport Parks and Recreation Department will be holding two public meetings this month to provide an overview of the next phase of development for Riverbend Park.
Meetings will be held on the following dates:
– March 14 at 1:30 p.m. in the Renaissance Center Atrium
– March 27 at 5 p.m. in the Civic Auditorium Conference Room
The meetings are open to the public and the public is encouraged to attend to learn about and offer feedback on the proposed additions to Riverbend Park. This second phase of development for Riverbend Park is being done through a State of Tennessee Local Parks and Recreation Fund grant program.
Riverbend Park is located behind the Walmart Supercenter on Fort Henry Drive and will ultimately stretch from Riverbend Drive to Wesley Road. The first phase of the project includes a half-mile, granite walking trail along the river, a fishing pier and emergency access to the park.
