Gatlinburg Municipal Parks for Families

Herbert Holt Park is a creekside park and the first one you come into as you enter Gatlinburg from Pigeon Forge. There is a large pavilion, playground equipment, a handicap accessible fishing pier and a trout facility for the kids' entertainment. Herbert Holt is a great place for a picnic too with its own grills, sinks and horseshoe pits for the grandfathers who join you one Sunday afternoon.  Acorn cabin rentals has three cabins on the Little Pigeon River that are antique riverside cabins near this Park.  These cabins include River Dream, Granny's Cabin, and Bear Cabin.  You'll love the beauty of the rushing waters at this location! This Park is walking distance to town.

Mills Park is further up from Gatlinburg on Highway 321, right next to the high school and the Gatlinburg Community Center. Mills Park is a good place for kids to play sports in with a basketball court, baseball field, football and soccer fields, running track, skate park and horseshoe pits. Down the road a bit is another park with a playground and pavilion. There are also grills and sinks to cook out with.  The community center also offers bowling, racquetball, fitness center, ping pong, and so much more.  They also have indoor swimming pool.  Great for all ages to enjoy their exercise and sports.

Mynatt Park is downtown Gatlinburg's Municipal Park. It's located at the top of Airport Road with a creek running alongside it. Mynatt is the place to go to let the kids run around and wear out before bedtime. There is a LOT of open space, a basketball court, a playground just up the street, and a creek running along the picnic grounds. This Park is up Historic Indian Trail Airport Road at Light #8 in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
