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. The playground equipment includes towers with ramps and slides, a sway glider, a spinner, a four-seat seesaw, swings, a climber arch, a grab bar, a Lunar Blast rope climber and a crawl tunnel. Some features are designed for children aged 2 to 5 and others for children aged 5 to 12. The equipment includes special accessibility features, such as ramps, special seats and a braille panel.

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.

The City of Knoxville is working on the Phase 1A improvements which will include piers on Fourth Creek and the Tennessee River, a boardwalk through the wetlands area, a large central recreational/special events field, garden areas, picnic areas, a new connector road to the lower baseball fields and other improvements.

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.
