Kingsport cuts ribbon on Riverbend Park

Kingsport ribbon cutting

Officials with the city of Kingsport have cut the ribbon on the first phase of Riverbend Park, the new newest city park. The first phase of the park includes a floating fishing pier and half-mile, granite walking trail. The park will ultimately be 22 acres of what was once a 100-acre farm operated by six generations of Kingsport residents. The land was donated to the city from an Alabama housing developer for the creation of a new city park. Plans for the park include play areas, pavilions, restrooms, benches, scenic spots, and interpretive signs spaced at various locations along the river over the next five to 10 years.
