Volunteer Landing is owned by the City of Knoxville and operated by the Public Building Authority of the County of Knox and the City of Knoxville, Tennessee. The Park was the site of the Holston Treaty. Volunteer Landing is located near the University of Tennessee campus and downtown Knoxville. The main area of the Landing consists of the Tower just west of Calhoun's, the grassy circle, and the areas around the geysers and waterfalls. This space can accommodate small to medium sized special events, although many larger special events have taken place there. The Tower has two concession stands, however, only the west concession stand is accessible to those using the Landing as an event venue; the other houses the River Sports Outfitters' Bike Rental Shop.
