The Lakeshore Park Campaign

Your gift has the power to help us grow.

The Lakeshore Park Campaign will raise capital funds to develop for public use this 185-acre tract of beautiful land right in the heart of Knoxville along the Tennessee River. The fund raising goal for this first phase of development is $25 million which
 will preserve the green spaces and open up the water front areas on the River and Fourth Creek 
for public enjoyment. With the addition of picnic pavilions, restrooms, open fields, gardens, walking trail expansion, playgrounds and more, there will be something to satisfy almost any active or passive outdoor pursuit. Please visit the Future tab on this website to see the detailed master plan for Lakeshore Park.

Join us to help bring the dream to life. A gift to the Lakeshore Park Campaign is an investment in the future of our community. The Park will be here long after we are gone. This is your chance to leave a legacy for future generations.

Please contact Cardin Bradley at (865) 801-1000 to discuss capital gifts and naming opportunities.
