Ijams Nature Center In Knoxville, TN

Yesterday I visited Ijams Nature Center, a 315-acre park along the Tennessee River in Knoxville. Originally a marble and limestone quarry in the early 1900’s, it’s been converted now to serve as an outdoor recreation area with Mead’s Quarry Lake and a network of hiking/biking trails. There’s also a stand for refreshments.

Enjoy your visit!
