With its variety of beautiful settings – from green meadows to hilltops with mountain and river views to Marble Hall and Pavilion – Lakeshore Park provides the perfect environment for your party or special event. Just minutes from downtown Knoxville and easily accessible from McGhee-Tyson airport, Lakeshore Park offers convenience and options for everyone. Whether the occasion is a small corporate meeting, a birthday party, or a large, lavish wedding, multiple outdoor options are available to you within our 185-acre park.

Significant construction is taking place in the park from Spring 2022 through early 2024. All event requests during this time must schedule a site visit with staff at the park before rental contracts are finalized.

All rentals require payment of a refundable security deposit that is returned pending the state of the facility and removal of all event trash from the park. All events involving 100 people or more require a minimum $500 security deposit. Service fees apply for events involving 100 or more people.

Items not allowed in Lakeshore Park: balloons, non-biodegradable confetti and other thrown items, spray paint, grills and open flames except for the grill at the Rustic Pavilion, inflatables or bounce houses of any kind, and live animals except for domesticated house pets.
