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. Here are a few ways to support the Park!


Your support created this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a new park for future generations. By giving to the Lakeshore Park Conservancy, you are investing in the future of our beloved city. Any amount is welcome and appreciated.

Tributes and Memorials

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.

Corporate Partners

We have opportunities for corporate partnerships that strategically place your brand and team in the heart of Lakeshore Park. Event sponsorships, in-kind donations of services, and other partnerships help make our work possible. For more information on ways to support the Lakeshore Park Conservancy through corporate investments, please contact Julieanne Foy at


Volunteering at Lakeshore Park is a wonderful way to enhance the park experience for all visitors, and we offer many volunteer opportunities for both individuals and groups. We need your help to keep the park beautiful and to execute our events and programs. For more information, please contact the
Lakeshore Park Conservancy office at 865-215-1722.
