Like many other businesses and organizations, Lakeshore Park Conservancy is facing uncertain times. The Park remains a place of refuge and serenity during this crisis, but the surge in visitors also brings a need for increased waste collection and cleaning around the Park. The Conservancy relies upon contributions from friends and supporters of the Park and special events to fund maintenance and operation of the Park. Funds are still needed to cover the costs of mowing, caring for the trees, shrubs and flowers and general maintenance and cleaning in the Park. Lakeshore Park and other general recreation parks are among the few spaces that has remained open to the public, and keeping them open and operational is critical to the physical and mental health of our community. Your donation today can help keep your Park beautiful and operational.

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.
