Downtown Playground

The General Shale Complex has the potential to become a premier destination for Kingsport. In addition to Brickyard Park that brings in regional and national youth sports tournaments, the next phase will be to create a multipurpose outdoor venue.

Recently, a new project is in the works for Brickyard Park. Special needs kids, teens and adults will have their own field, Miracle Field, where they will be able to play baseball. For more information on this story, please click here.
