Nestled in Nature

Oak Ridge is nestled between the Great Smokey and Cumberland Mountains. The forests of mature oak-hickory and planted pine make up much of the 35,000 acres of federally owned land within city limits, supporting abundant wildlife and about 1,100 species of native plants. This East Tennessee valley provides a beautiful landscape, four seasons and numerous outdoor activities.

Whether you enjoy the mountains, the water or just a walk in the park, there’s something for you in Oak Ridge.
