Mayor Glenn Jacobs is proud to announce the formation and investment in formally establishing the Knox County Water Trail on beautiful Beaver Creek. This initiative is focused on clearing, cleaning, and caring for a 44-mile stretch of navigable water across five communities between Clayton Park in Halls and Melton Hill in Hardin Valley.
Over the next few years, Knox County Parks & Recreation will work with strategic partners to clear a significant number of tree jams that are impeding the water flow and access, then work to clean up Beaver Creek of trash and debris, and finally build a program to care for this vital waterway that stretches all across the northern half of Knox County.
When complete, The Knox County Water Trail project will help mitigate flooding issues, improve water quality and establish Beaver Creek as an ever-lasting recreational facility for generations to come.
