The rolling landscape and large open spaces make Lakeshore Park a haven for recreational activities. In addition to eight sport fields, several playgrounds and picnic areas, the 4-mile Lakeshore Greenway loops around the park with a stretch alongside Fort Loudon Lake. From the hilltop start of the Greenway, the views overlooking the lake with the distant rise of the Smoky Mountains are absolutely stunning. The new state-of-the-art Hank Rappe Playground is an inclusive space for children of all ages and abilities and includes a resilient surface, multiple play areas and special equipment.

The park also includes vast recreational opportunities with 6 baseball/softball fields with lights, and 3 soccer fields. For reservations or program information, call Knox Youth Sports at 865-584-6403 or check out www.knoxyouthsports.com.

New Additions:
Fourth Creek Trail Section: A new trail section, approximately 1750 feet long, is fully lighted with several seating areas. It connects at both ends to the main perimeter trail and offers a wooded alternative to the existing trail.
Fourth Creek Pier, Picnic Area and Water Access: New 50-foot fishing pier with seating and a water access point and a picnic area have been added on a scenic cove on Fourth Creek.
Boardwalk: Along the bank of the Tennessee Rive, a shaded boardwalk runs through riverfront woods and a natural marsh filled with native plants.
River Pier and Overlook: A 90-foot elevated pier has been constructed from the boardwalk to the river's edge with an overlook and seating area above a long lagoon and natural riparian woodlands. The pier is accessible from the boardwalk.

The park is made possible through a public/private partnership between the City of Knoxville and Lakeshore Park, the non-profit corporation which manages the park.
