Nearly ten years before the transition of the former Lakeshore Mental Health Institute campus into a public park, the ETCDC worked with the institute to develop a walking and jogging trail for the staff and residents. These trails became the foundation of today’s park in 1993 when the State and the City of Knoxville started with 60 acres of shared park space.
