Bicentennial Greenbelt Park in downtown Maryville, Tennessee was developed in order to change the nature of the area once used for light industry and known for heavy pollution. The key to the redevelopment in the area was cleaning of the once polluted Pistol Creek that now runs through the park. The development of Bicentennial Park changed the character of the entire area. Its walkways became the roots of the Maryville Alcoa Greenway and the park became locally known as the Greenbelt. The area around Bicentennial Park started to grow and rejuvenate, Canada geese stopped at Bicentennial Park on migration, and in 1999, the first phase of the Maryville Alcoa Greenway was finished and included the former walkways in Bicentennial Park.
