Enjoying the great outdoors in Kingsport is always in season. Recreational opportunities are plentiful and easily accessible, with both the Holston River and a greenway weaving through the heart of the city, more than two dozen neighborhood parks, and scenic mountains all around.
“You can do something outside all year long in our region, and it can be something different almost every day,” Kingsport Parks & Recreation Manager Kitty Frazier says.
One of the most popular activities is taking advantage of the Kingsport Greenbelt, a 9-mile long paved trail that averages approximately 10,000 users every month. The Greenbelt connects nearly all aspects of the city, from nature areas to residential neighborhoods to the downtown commercial district.
