Knoxville’s Concord/Bluegrass area offers waterfront homes along the beautiful Tennessee River and on the banks of Fort Louden Lake. Residential areas include upscale subdivisions like Whittington Creek, that offer both the ambiance of lush landscaping and the convenience of nearby shopping and dining. One of my favorite local restaurants is Willy’s Bar & Grill — indoor/outdoor seating, sports bar, live music & a varied menu!
Concord is an unincorporated town in Knox County listed on the National Register of Historic Places; Read our previous feature on Old Concord to learn more. Concord Park is a local gathering spot, especially for those looking to boat of fish on Fort Louden Lake. Just off Northshore Drive, the 500-acre park also has softball fields, golf, paved and natural trails, a swimming pool and mountain biking routes. Swim at the sand beachfront, play volleyball or rent a canoe for a fun day out with the family.
Bluegrass follows the Tennessee River and is easily accessible from Pellissippi Parkway. Its easily one of the most beautiful areas of Knoxville, with an upscale feel that is still just a quick jaunt into the Smokey Mountains. Like Concord, Bluegrass features public parks with great amenities. Locals play disc golf and picnic at Admiral Farragut Park and cool off at the splash pad after playing soccer or tennis at Carl Cowan Park. Walking trails connect the two parks.
