Town of Lake Lure

The new Morse Park amphitheater and Lake Lure Marina will provide locals and visitors with exceptional facilities for viewing the performing arts and experiencing one of Western North Carolina’s most unique lakes.

Project Status

The Morse Park Master Plan features a new amphitheater for hosting major performing art events. And a proposed new Lake Lure Marina building will feature a two-story, 5,000 square foot visitor center and upper floor restaurant. The marina will continue to serve Lake Lure Tours and boat slip users. However, a new visitor center will cater to tourists wishing to explore Rutherford County’s many resources and assets.

The new boat slips and boardwalk were completed in 2020.

Opportunities for Giving

The Town and Tourism Development Authority are working to raise funding to begin the engineering phase of Morse Park Amphitheater. Naming rights are available, and the Town is seeking a private partner wishing to establish a restaurant on the upper floor of the new marina.
