Sharps Ridge Memorial Park was dedicated to Knox County’s Veterans in 1953.
In 2015, The Veterans Heritage Site Foundation officially adopted the park and began a clean up project. Later that year we gained approval to transform it to an environment more befitting a Veterans Memorial Park and to add the word “Veterans” to the park name. On Veterans Day 2016 Knoxville City Mayor Madeline Rogero officially announced the renaming of the park as “Sharps Ridge Veterans Memorial Park”.
