Lloyd Knox Park


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 dozens of forested and lakeside picnicking spots. There are also six reserveable 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 serve and the restrooms are locked (vault-toilet facilities remain available).

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