KNOXVILLE (Oct. 30, 2013) -- Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, Commission Chairman Brad Anders and at-large Commissioner Ed Shouse announced today that the soon-to-be constructed Karns Senior Center will be located at the Karns Sports Park.

"This is going to be a great senior center located in a community that doesn't currently have easy access to one of the other five centers around the county," said Mayor Burchett.  "I know this is something that is very important to Chairman Anders, and I am happy that we were able to work together to make this happen."

Final details about the center are still being worked out, but the site offers plenty of parking, a relatively flat grade and easy access from anywhere in and around the Karns Community.

Knox County currently operates five senior centers througout the county.  All of them offer high-quality programming for Knox County's seniors.  More information about Knox County Senior Services can be found at
