(WBIR) Spring officially starts Thursday afternoon so it's time to head outdoors and enjoy our area's parks and outdoor facilities.

The city of Knoxville boasts 2000 acres worth of parks and 85 miles of greenways and trails, according to Kathleen Gibi, with Knoxville's Parks and Recreation Department.

The Ashley Nicole Dream Playground, located at 620 Winona St., is the city's biggest playground and also its first 100 percent accessible one.

The Outdoor Knoxville website offers lots of information about the area's outdoor activities and how to find the best trails near you.
