Opening in 1945, with 20 acres, this park boasts a community center, a playground, public restrooms, a picnic shelter, basketball courts, tennis courts, and a paved walking/jogging path. The land was owned by the grandchildren of the late Col. Granville Sevier, and sold to the city in 1945 for $41,000. Before the Sevier family owned the property, it was a French trading post. Frequent readers will be reminded how much I love a misnomer, and by 1955, this park was often referred to as "John Sevier Park" (John Sevier being the first governor of Tennessee, and great uncle of the actual namesake, Granville Sevier). It's a really good size park, in a bustling neighborhood. It was almost impossible to find parking and even harder to take pictures without people in it- so that should give you some idea of it's popularity and relevance today. This park is well maintained, and has a lot to offer.
