Farragut in Pictures!

Copyrightę 2008-2009 V. Spencer -- Updated Jan. 20, 2009 -- EMAIL

Just West of Knoxville Tennessee, Farragut is an upscale residential town that has no debt, Farragut has no real estate taxes for homeowners (county yes, town no), Farragut has great schools including a national Blue Ribbon (top 64!) winning high school, a public library with a beautifully designed park, two competition class golf courses (Willow Creek Golf Club and Fox Den Country Club), hospitals (Baptist and Park West) rated top 100 in the nation with several others near by, convenient shopping, churches of various denominations, great parks, lovely residential homes, and several large beautiful lakes, just outside Farragut (see map below) for boating or fishing. All the above is within 15-25 minutes of most homes in Farragut. This is a great place to live and work. Just a note about living on the lake: great views can be had, but it is a lot more expensive, with a lot of bugs and boat noise also. But having or renting a boat to go out on the lakes is fantastic.

For us, Farragut is Heaven. We love this place!

Mayor Bob Leonard Park

Sports-focused with many fields for different sports, well lit at night, and long paved trails for walking or jogging. This park was named after Farragut's first mayor, Bob Leonard.

The Farragut Library and Campbell Station Park

This is a lovely, well designed park with Turkey Creek running through it, a gazebo, benches in nice and tranquil areas, about a mile of winding trails and bronze-like statues of children reading, biking, playing. The library is great, with a large number of PCs for public Internet access.

Just outside Farragut:

Concord Park Marina, Boat Launch Ramps, Picnic Facilities, Restaurant and Tennis Courts

Large marina constructed in 2003, beautiful walk ways, tennis courts, and an excellent restaurant on top of the hill. Only ten minutes from Farragut subdivisions; Concord Road south, turn left onto Northshore Drive at end of Concord Road, entrance is a couple of miles on the left. One can also turn into a very nice boat-launching complex with three ramps and nice picnic facilities across Northshore Drive, also part of the Concord Park complex.

There are three boat launch ramps into the water, plenty of parking, and a nice park on the water next to it all.

Concord Park - Cove Point

Only ten minutes from Farragut subdivisions; Concord Road south, turn right on Northshore Drive, it will be a few miles on the left, just after the Concord Yacht Club. This is a very impressive park with picnic areas, volleyball courts, a large play-set for children, a rustic-looking river sports shop with boat rental (non-power), beach and boating-related merchandise, and a very attractive white sandy beach with the Concord Yacht Club in the background (to the east). There is a large gazebo, a small stage and entertainment many weekends and holidays.
