Steele Creek Park

If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.
--President Lyndon B. Johnson

Steele Creek Park in Bristol, TN is among the best city parks in the region. With miles of jogging, hiking and biking trails, a 9-hole golf course, nature center and picnic sites, this is the third largest municipal park in the State of Tennessee. It's a busy place in the summer months, very popular for family and group cookouts. But it's open all year long, and there's a lot to discover within its 2000+ acres. So don't let the weather keep you from getting out - there are beautiful things to be seen all year! Click here for directions and click here for trail maps.

There's also a small waterfall at the park -- click here for more information.

  1. Great place! I usually take my kindergarten class there for one of our spring field trips, and the kids LOVE it! So much to see and do. During the summer they have train rides through the park.
