Tate-Evans Park

210 Park Avenue
Banner Elk, NC 28604

Tate-Evans Park provides a walking trail, two playground areas - one area for smaller children and Fort VonCanon for more active children. There are wading pools, a volleyball court, picnic tables, and a covered picnic shelter. Restroom facilities are available from April though September. The amphitheatre holds the Summer Concert Series each Thursday night beginning in June. Other festivities are 4th of July celebrations, the annual gathering around the campfire in the park (a final farewell to summer celebration), a Spook-tacular event at Halloween, and the annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Caroling. We cannot describe the park without mentioning the birthday parties, reunions, and weddings that regularly occur there.
