"Quiet neighborhood near downtown"

Park City is home to the Knoxville Zoo and near Chilhowee Park. Chilhowee is a park where several events happen through the year. The area at first glance may seem run down going down Magnolia and Martin Luther King Jr Ave. Several of the shops and roads are not in the best condition and the houses in the neighborhoods are not in the best shape. The area does tend to be a bit quieter as far as crime and abuse than down the street. Park City has access to a number of parks which may be a good place to have children, or take a stroll. The area is quite affordable, and offers a great start to couples seeking to buy their first house.

My last visit here was to an estate auction in one of the neighborhoods. Some of the neighborhoods may appear run down, others seem very well kept. The population is a mix of older retirees and young couples starting out. The school system is not the best Knoxville has to offer, but is not terrible. The two main streets can also get congested at times, specifically during events at the zoo and parks. The cost of living however is affordable and could be well worth the investment. All in all, this is a quieter area that is far enough from downtown and parts of Magnolia that do not exhibit a high crime rate. While not the best of Knoxville, good people can make the difference.
