This mega recreational destination plays host to a wide variety of outdoor fun — on both land and water! Concord Park sprawls over both sides of Northshore Drive and is surrounded by the Fort Loudoun Lake. With separate entrances for various activities, it's a good idea to know what form of play you're interested in pursuing. The park features paved greenway trails for walkers and runners, and miles of singletrack for hikers, cross-country runners and mountain bikers. Then for your four-legged friends, the Concord Dog Park will be opening soon!
Concord Park East: the first of the Park entrances is on the right. Here you'll enjoy in-line-hockey, the skatepark, soccer fields and a walking trail. The paved Parkey Strader Loop circles the soccer field and offers a lakeside bench at its midway. Directly across the street hosts the junior golf course, tennis courts, mountain bike/hiking trails, dog park, and the marina. The next entrance on the left, provides a boat ramp and a shoreline spur trail that wanders over to a prime spot for fishing and enjoying a picnic.
Concord Park West: further down Northshore Drive on the right is the entrance to the sporting fields for soccer and softball plus the entry for the boat launch.
The Cove at Concord: as you continue south on Northshore Drive, you'll pass by several public fishing areas before reaching The Cove. This section of the park is where you can max out on Fort Loudoun Lake with paddling, fishing, and a swimming beach. On land there is a playground, volleyball and shoreline walks! During the warm months, the River Sports Cove store is open for canoe and kayak rentals. The Cove at Concord Park is 500 acres and has boat ramp access, concessions, fishing, marina, natural trails for mountain biking, paved trails, picnic areas, a playground, tennis courts, and golf course.
