A New Chapter for a Beloved Park

East Knoxville is a diverse area near downtown that’s rich in history and has long been a center of African-American culture. The Legacy Parks Foundation applied for a BlueCross Healthy Place grant to enhance the features in Morningside Park, a well-loved, 36-acre community space, and to help improve the overall health of area residents.

The BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Foundation invested $5.5 million to build the first BlueCross Healthy Place in the Knoxville area.
