Ball Camp Park in North West Knox County is a community green space that manages to squeeze a number of amenities into its six-acre size.
With a pair of soccer fields, two combination tennis and basketball courts, and a quad of softball fields, Ball Camp Park is sure to satisfy the outdoor recreation needs of most without the long drive to a national park.
Patrons of all shapes, sizes and ages can enjoy the common space at Ball Camp Park. A modern playground keeps the children entertained, a covered pavilion and several picnic areas offer several opportunities to enjoy a meal, and the centrally-located restrooms are well within reach.
There are two paved trails within the park. Both are open to walkers, skaters, and bike riders. A .5-mile track loops around the soccer fields and a more scenic .3-mile, tree-lined trail winds through a peaceful parcel of picturesque hillside before continuing along to the softball fields. Both are accessible from the central parking area.
Ball Camp Park is a great place to take the kids for recreation, share an elusive family meal, or just kick back and enjoy a bit of solitude.
