I think so highly of this location, and want you to see this area so bad, I tell you what I’m going to do! I’m going to make it so easy to find that even a cave man can do it!
If you’re not from around here and are passing through, get off the interstate at exit 387 and follow the big, green signs to Downtown / Henley Street (US 441S). Henley takes you right by the big gold 'sun sphere' - a holdover from the 1982 World Fair. You can ride up the sun sphere in an elevator for free! Continue south on Henley and cross over the big Tennessee River bridge and make an immediate left onto Blount Avenue by Baptist Hospital. Keep to the right at the 2nd light, and you will automatically move on to Sevier Avenue. In about 1/2 mile you will see green signs to “Ijams Park” and "Island Home Airport". Follow these signs. You want Island Home Ave.
Follow the signs to Ijams Park. You will cross a RR track twice, and pass by a large facility behind a fence. This is the Tennessee School for the Deaf. Within 3/4 mile, you will cross another RR track. Turn here into the parking lot and grab your suff.
Look for a black fellow high-steppin’ it and go to him. You will not find Scotch on the Rocks here, but the right place is groovy! You can start high steppin’ it yourself, now that you are on the way.
In Monoply, Boardwalk is a coveted property, and so it is here; go for it. I hate these stones… ahhh, I love these wood chips!…. ughhh, back to the stones!… ahhh, more chips. Do you see it yet? Maybe its getting just a bit cooler!
Soon the smiles will be forthcoming. “What a precious spot this is!”, you say to yourself as you lean on the rails. I know you must be tired by now, you’ve come at least 1/2 mile – poor thing! Its not your Fault if you are folding, And you still have some climbing to do! For some reason, I keep humming this old pop tune by The 4 Preps, “Twenty-six miles across the sea; Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me; Santa Catalina, the island of romance romance, romance, romance” Can you dig it?
If you're a map person, you can Google Ijams in Knoxville and printout a map of the environs. First finder gets an expensive American flag lapel pin!
