Lloyd Knox Park


Beginning Friday, June 5, Lloyd Knox Park will open on a modified basis. Common areas (including group picnic areas, bathrooms, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, activity field and swing sets) will remain closed.  Due to the physical distancing and local gathering requirements of the Phase 1 reopening, we are not accepting any reservations for group picnic areas until further notice.

Our Lloyd Knox Park located along the shores of Leaburg Lake 22 miles east of Springfield offers recreational opportunities for people of all interests — and it's free.

You can stroll through the 50-acre park along maintained trails and picnic at one of the dozens of forested and lakeside picnicking spots. There are also six reservable areas that are suitable for anywhere from a couple dozen to a few hundred people. 

You may reserve one of the group picnic areas starting the third weekend in April through Oct. 15. Outside of that date range, the park is first-come, first-served and the restrooms are locked (vault-toilet facilities remain available).

Please follow the park guidelines to ensure all visitors have a safe and enjoyable time. 

To reserve one of the group areas, please complete an application.
