Berkeley Park

A Southern neighborhood featuring a two-tiered, hand-carved fountain, the romantic flicker of gas lanterns embraced by limestone adorned brick columns, tree-lined streets with elegant street lamps woven throughout, and homes with classic covered front porches with sidewalks stretched to welcome guests. Towering two stories over the entrance to Berkeley Park is the eight-ton hand-carved fountain of careta stone crowned with lifelike bronze Great Blue Herons, custom cast by world-renowned artist, Walter Palmer. Enter the brick-paved oasis of lush Magnolias, Boxwoods, and Crape Myrtles—truly, a perfect gathering spot to relax amid the misty spray of the fountain and to create long-lasting memories with friends and family.

The neighborhood is conveniently located in the town of Farragut, some 15 miles southwest of downtown Knoxville, TN. The town encompasses approximately 17 square miles with a growing population now exceeding 17,800 people. The town is governed by a Board of Mayor and Aldermen (4).
