Directions: From downtown Knoxville, take Kingston Pike headed west; turn left onto Northshore Drive at Western Plaza; park is approximately 2 miles on left at Lakeshore Institute.


A popular location to runners and walkers, Lakeshore Park provides spectacular vistas of Fort Loudoun Lake and the Smoky Mountains. Results from the City greenway laser counter project proved Lakeshore Greenway to be the most heavily used greenway in Knoxville. 

Lakeshore Park is managed by a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to preserve, protect, and maintain the Park for public use and to provide on-going financial support for operation, expansion, enhancement, and beautification of the Park. The future development of Lakeshore Park and all park improvements will be supported by private donations. To make a gift, schedule an event, or for more information, visit www.LakeshoreParkKnoxville.org

The park also includes vast recreational opportunities with 6 baseball / softball fields with lights, and 3 soccer fields. For reservations or program information, call Knox Youth Sports at 865-584-6403 or check out www.knoxyouthsports.com.
