Welcome to Lake Forest in South Knoxville

Formerly a sheep farm owned by the McCall family, neighborhood houses were first built in the 1940s and 50s around McCall’s Pond. Lake Forest Neighborhood has always been a peaceful, scenic neighborhood featuring modest well-constructed homes, each with its own unique sense of charm.

Home-buyers today find all of their wish-list items when they see the established shade trees, walkable streets with scenic views, private yards perfect for a veggie garden, fireplaces with marble surrounds, hardwood floors and more square footage per dollar.

Featured in the Chapman Highway Dogwood Trail, Lake Forest is decorated every spring with lacey white and pink dogwoods and bright yellow forsythias. Tulips, daffodils, azaleas, red bud trees and wisteria dress up the neighborhood. “There’s something about Knoxville that makes dogwood trees grow taller. Blossoms are giant-sized,” Paul Harvey said. “In residential streets, the nurtured dogwoods are resplendent by day and moonlighted by night.”

Dogwoods are some of the first trees to turn brilliant colors in the fall, treating residents to a gorgeous autumn.

With 3.5 miles of hiking and biking trails at William Hastie Natural Area, Lake Forest is now even more attractive to those who love the outdoors.
