Hamilton County Commissioners unanimously voted today to allow the county to accept a $500,000 grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation to buy property for the next phase of the Tennessee Riverpark project.

The acquisition will extend the park's Riverwalk from Ross's Landing to St. Elmo Avenue. The property to be purchased is currently privately owned.
