The Lakeside Rose Garden is a favorite romantic destination and showcase for the Fort Wayne Parks Department to display their botanical excellence. Also we recently have brought our preschool age grandkids for a picnic in the playground area. Take a walk around the pond and enjoy the afternoon!

This place is just nice in the spring until fall the roses and flowers are nice. Great place to have a wedding, take pictures and the background is to die for if you are doing a photo shoot.n

An overall beautiful park. Great for wedding, prom and event photos. Water gardens and paths, and the largest Rose Garden in Fort Wayne. Catch it in all the seasons.

My husband and I spent over an hour at this beautiful park over Memorial Day weekend and we could have stayed longer. The gardens are beautiful, peaceful and serene. This place would be great for both families and couples to have a picnic lunch. Restroom facilities were available, next to the playground.

One goes to Lakeside Park for the beautiful flowers. There are walkways and fountains and benches to sit and do whatever you do best whilst sitting. There are no swings and slides there but I see folks fishing in the associated lake. It makes a nice photo excursion throughout the warm months.

This was the site of a wedding we attended. The roses were in bloom and the area was so lovely. Great area of kids to run off some steam as well!

A small but fun garden. Unique. More like something one would find in a major metropolitan area. Parking can be iffy, though.
