BACKGROUND: Knox County Commissioner Courtney Durrett will be joined by Parks and Recreation Senior Director Joe Mack to host the first “Walk with a Commissioner” event at 4 p.m. on July 7. The event is part of a series started last month by Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs and Joe Mack in an effort to encourage a healthy lifestyle and showcase local greenways.
Durrett and Mack plan to walk the trails at New Harvest Park. In addition, the park will host its weekly Farmers’ Market from 3-6 p.m. that day. Both events are free and open to the public.
This event was rescheduled from last month due to rain.
