Support the Zaevion Dobson Memorial Playground and Park

From the White House to ESPN, Zaevion Dobson’s heroic actions of sacrificing his life to save the lives of three friends have inspired a nation. The Lonsdale community seeks to honor a neighborhood hero and create a better future by providing a safe place for children in Lonsdale Homes to play – The Zaevion Dobson Memorial Playground and Park.

The Playground and Park will appeal to children under the age of 12 and will include a memorial plaque for Zaevion Dobson, playground equipment for young children, a multipurpose lawn for sports and other activities, benches for adult supervision, security lighting, and monitoring and maintenance by Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC).

KCDC, Gerdau, and the City of Knoxville are partnering to build the playground in Lonsdale Homes and are asking local businesses and individuals to provide additional support the completion of this $60,000 project. Legacy Parks Foundation is managing the funds for this effort.
