Karns Lions Club


The Lions Mission: To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions Clubs.


On Thursday, June 15th from at least 9 am - 2 pm, we will have a film crew featuring our playground in a promotional film. They will be creating a film of our playground in use to promote all-inclusive playgrounds throughout the US. We wanted to let people know that if they come to play during these hours, they will have to sign a waver allowing their children to be filmed. If anyone isn't interested in participating, they will not be able to play that day (and we want to save people a trip out.) Please share this with anyone that might be impacted! This is a HUGE honor for our playground!

All-Inclusive Handicap Playground

The Karns Lions Club is building an All Inclusive Handicap Playground for ages 2-12 this Fall. The playground will provide social interaction, development of understanding, acceptance, and the building of common ground between children of all abilities. Children just want to be accepted and the playground will bring all children together in a safe and equal environment. The playground will be built  at the Karns Lions Club Community Park next to the Community Swimming Pool. It is the only All Inclusive Playground for Karns, Powell, Ball Camp, Cedar Bluff, Solway, Farragut, Hardin Valley, and Halls Communities. The Karns Lions Club is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and 100% of all funds earned will go toward the playground.

          You can help the Karns Lions Club build the playground by any monetary donation, advertisement sign, and purchase of an engraved brick. You can purchase just one paver or several. You can buy them in your name or the name of a friend or family member; in celebration of a birth, graduation, wedding or anniversary; in honor of a soldier or veteran; in memory of someone you love or just because. Businesses, firms and organizations are also encouraged to participate in our brick fundraising efforts.
