New “Green” parking lot on Teaser Lane is scheduled to open in Pigeon Forge April 16th. Parking should be free until the end of the summer, then a possible “fee” will be determined. I don’t know about you, but one of the benefits of Pigeon Forge for us is the free parking. I know we’ve visited Pigeon Forge instead of Gatlinburg for dinner or whatnot at night (after leaving the cabin) specifically because the parking was free, and easy to find. It sounds like this parking area on Teaster Lane will eventually be a “transportation hub” for Pigeon Forge. It is also connected to a 1 mile green walkway. Sounds like a nice way to enjoy time with the family along the river in Pigeon Forge. I think officials in Pigeon Forge should really push trying to open up access along the river for walking and enjoying the river as much as possible. There are areas of the river in Pigeon Forge behind some of the businesses on the strip that looks like a great place to enjoy the river, but just not much access to it at this point. Maybe with this greenway area, they are working to change that. I can’t wait to enjoy that with the family soon.
