Any idea when a connection between Bearden and West Hills will happen?

Here is the Knoxville-Knox County Parks and Greenways Plan.

You can see there are a LOT of desired greenway connections. Funding is harder to come by. Let your elected officials know that this is a priority for you. You can also ask the City Greenways Coordinator about her plans and upcoming projects, 215-2807.
