Safety City to Close During Summer for Renovations

Posted: 06/01/2015
Safety CityKnoxville Police Department’s Safety City will remain closed this summer due to much needed renovations.  

The child-size replica of the City of Knoxville has been a popular location for families to visit during summer break.

Closing Safety City during the summer allows for the repairs to be completed by the time students return to school in August.  

This is the first renovation of the facility since it opened 12 years ago.  

Although the miniature city will be closed, the public will still have access to the playground area.  Families are also encouraged to visit other city parks that are located throughout Knoxville.
