KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A Knoxville man is donating to the Legacy Parks Foundation for a Missing Link Trail south of the river.

Bobby Smelcer’s Blount Avenue property will allow for seamless connection between Mary Vestal Park, Fort Dickerson, and Downtown Knoxville.

“With the connections of the greenway here Knoxville, it just helps promotes business and also people coming in from out of town.”
