"Busy, busy, busy!"

This road connects Oak Ridge Hwy and Middlebrook Pike It then turns into Lovell Road and continues down to Kingston Pike. This is used by many commuters to get from one side of Knoxville to the other. Residents of this road are zoned for the Karns school system. With so many commuters, traffic on this road can become intense at times. Living directly on this road can be a chore trying to back out of your driveway during rush hours. Most of the houses along this road are set back quite far from the road, but even so traffic can still be noisy at times. Many of these houses are older construction, but several neighborhoods off Ball Road are of new construction. You will find anything from trailers to nice townhomes along this road.
There is one park directly on this road with baseball and soccer accommodations. There is also a small playground suitable for small children. Walking trails surround the ball fields and playgrounds. You will often see walkers, runners, and skaters circling the trails. Being that this road spans so broadly across Knoxville, shopping of every kind is minutes of driving time in either direction. Dining is the same in that regards. Drive one way for the best mom and pop bbq you can find, or drive the other for a valet parking sit down restaurant. Over all if you like having everything accessible this is a great place to live, but if you prefer the quiet life there may be other streets to suit your needs better.
