River Walk & Canoe Park

Konehete Park

The Konehete Park is located next to the Fitness Center and Pool. The park has a playground for the kids, tennis courts, baseball fields, and is within walking distance of historic downtown Murphy. It's pet friendly.

River Walk Information & Website


One of my favorite places in all of Murphy is the River Walk. The Valley River Park is located next to the fitness center and is a wonderful place to bring the kids (large fenced in playground) or take your dog for a walk or just to take a stroll. The Trail takes you along the river and into the woods on a path that is charming and easy to navigate.

Hit the beautifully scenic Murphy River Walk at Konehete Park or the McClelland Street
or the Old L&N Depot trail heads in town, and enjoy!
Canoe and kayak put-ins can be found on Payne Street and Hiwassee Street just beyond the River Walk trail. The approximate 2 miles of trail surfaces start at the far end of Konehete Park along the Valley River, and end at the Old L&N Depot by the Hiwassee River bridge.
