KPD's SAFETY CITY

Safety City

The Safety City Park sets in front of Safety City, the Knoxville Police Department's mini city that provides early education for elementary school children about vehicular, pedestrian, bicycle and fire safety. Safety City features child-size setting buildings complete with paved streets and sidewalks, working traffic signals and traffic signs. Children are able to practice and demonstrate their safety skills in participatory activities. Safety City is only open to the public on certain days in June and July. Check KPD's Safety City webpage for more information.
