Default Good place to live in Knoxville for joggers

Are there any good neighborhoods to consider living if one enjoys jogging? I have seen some greenways on a map but never really found them in person besides the little paths around World's Fair Park.

Thanks!


P.S. Mainly interested in the Knoxville area for this post.

I second Sequoyah Hills. Cherokee Blvd is a wonderful place to jog -- I use to drive to the park and jog there frequently. The surrounding neighborhoods are quite expensive though.

Lakeshore Park further west also has a nice ~2 mile loop with several hills.

I don't think matt can afford SH. The island home area and Bearden are good suggestions. To visit in person - go to IH Park on Estelle circle and you'll see a greenway heading east. In Bearden, park at Earth Fare and look for the greenway heading back to town along 3rd creek.

Maybe he could afford a Bearden bungalow? Plenty of sidewalks, walk to the grocery store, greenways, bike trails...

Hate to be nitpicky, kitties, but where are there sidewalks in Bearden? There's one along Sutherland where its needed but elsewhere???? Now I'm personally OK with walking on minor streets with low traffic, but someone who's looking for sidewalks for their kids will be disappointed.

I second this post. Both areas are outstanding. Lakeshore Park is one of Knoxville's treaures. I used to drive to it in about 15 minutes. It was well worth the drive. I think the Rocky Hill community is affordable for a mid-class income earner.
