Farragut The admiral city

Farragut is a close-knit town with an active community that hosts many annual gatherings, music concerts, book fairs, and art shows. Farragut is the farthest suburb of West Knoxville; it is west of Pellissippi Parkway and straddles both Knox and Loudon Counties.  Kingston Pike (US-11) runs through the middle of Farragut and makes it easy to navigate.  With a population of around 23,0000, Farragut lives like a small town with “big city” amenities. Turkey Creek Shopping Center serves most of Knox and Loudon Counties and is home to national retailers (Walmart, Target, Regal Cinemas, Belk, and Publix) as well as local stores.  

The town of Farragut was incorporated in 1975 and some of the neighborhoods have been established since that time, however, the majority were built in the 1990s and beyond.  Some of the well-known neighborhoods are Fox Den (which includes the Fox Den Country Club) and Village Green. The newer Farragut neighborhoods include Saddle Ridge, Rockwell Farm, Farragut Crossing, Sugarwood, and Bridgemore.  Rapidly developing sub-divisions on and near the Tennessee River (Lake Loudon) in the Choto area, are being built as well.  Some of these include Choto Estates and The Mill at Choto with conveniences located at the Markets at Choto.

The Farragut Admirals Football and Baseball Teams are consistent Tennessee Regional and State Champions and the academics are well regarded. There is a Primary, Intermediate, Middle, and High School within the Farragut School System. There are several private schools in Farragut as well: Saint John Newman, Concord Christian School, The Goddard School, and Knoxville Christian School. For links to these schools, please click here.  Travel east on I-40 for about 2 miles and you can be at some of the other private school options in Knoxville:  Episcopal School of Knoxville, Webb School of Knoxville, Knoxville Catholic High School, and Christian Academy of Knoxville.

To take advantage of the outdoors, the Farragut parks and recreation department maintains 17-acres of parks, 25-miles of walking and cycling trails, and a vibrant city community center.  Make sure to stop by the Dixie Lee Farmers Market on Saturday morning, from spring to fall, for some of the best local goods and produce around.
