Parks & Recreation

J.R. Best, Parks & Recreation Director

If you love the sound of a bat cracking against a baseball or the plop of your lure striking the water at your favorite fishing hole or the serenity of a lake sidewalk with the hills of East Tennessee as a backdrop, then Kingston Parks and Recreation is the place for you. We have miles of walkways and shoreline, along with ball field facilities and picnic areas next to some of the most beautiful lakeside park in the area. We have a Community Center for those family and business gatherings. Some folks enjoy taking a dip in our junior-Olympic size swimming pool.

We pride ourselves for the place in the hearts of those who visit us. We conduct activities throughout the year to appeal to each and every age group. We offer clean and safe facilities with small town hospitality at no extra charge! Come Take Advantage of Our Good Nature!

Come out and play,
