Fountain City is located in North Knoxville close to the Halls and Powell communities. Downtown Knoxville isn’t far away via Broadway, which allows for an easy commute to various shops and restaurants and the University of Tennessee. This area is home to Fountain City Lake or more commonly referred to as the “Duck Pond,” and Fountain City Park, which stretches across 12 acres.
Here, you’ll find mostly single family homes and some apartments and townhomes. The homes here tend to be older, well established homes, some dating back to the 1940s. Fountain City hosts some excellent antique stores, as well as several local favorite restaurants such as Litton’s, The Creamery and the Fountain City Diner. There’s also the popular Rita’s Bakery, which is just down the street from our North office location.
Of course, no trip to North Knoxville would be complete without a stop at Pratt’s Country Store to buy locally grown plants and vegetables and locally raised meats.
