This year has given us all a new appreciation and perspective on the importance of our parks. Lakeshore Park has become a place of refuge and serenity during this crisis but this also puts a strain on the resources to keep the park clean and safe.

We don’t just enjoy having Lakeshore Park – we need the Park and we need to take care of it. Now is the best time to become a Friend of Lakeshore Park.

Friends of Lakeshore Park is a circle of individuals who are committed to the creation and maintenance of this extraordinary urban park along the Tennessee River. Friends contribute unrestricted gifts of $100 or more, providing a crucial runway of support as we build the park and the programs that will secure Lakeshore Park as a vibrant and active green space.

Just like Lakeshore Park provides a perfect setting for activities and making memories in every season, it can serve as a perfect gift for any occasion. A tribute gift or memorial is a meaningful way to celebrate weddings, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries or just to let someone know they’re in your thoughts.
