Kingsport opens new park
Kingsport officials cut the ribbon on the Model City’s newest park Thursday. The new park is called Riverbend Park, and is located on 22 acres of property that was donated and follows along the South Fork of the Holston River. The new park project started in 2022 and features a walking trail, a fishing pier and stunning views of the Holston River. Public parking is at the dead end of Wesley Road, off of Fort Henry Drive. Future plans for Riverbend Park includes boardwalks, art installations, playgrounds and additional parking.
