Krutch Park


Krutch Park is a beautiful one acre park located in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee.  The park features beautiful plantings and a flowing stream.  Changing exhibitions of sculptures are placed throughout the park.  Visitors can enjoy this lovely space by resting on benches, having a picnic, or simply wandering.
The sculpture in the background is Stargazer by Ray Katz.  It is constructed of welded and brushed aluminum for $40,000.
