This park is well taken care of. The flowers are well manicured and absolutely beautiful when flowers are in full bloom. This is a place for a nice walk. Great location for pictures. Quiet and peaceful.

Lakeside park is absolutely beautiful in the spring. The city of Fort Wayne does a great job of keeping it clean and majestic all summer long. Great for wedding pics.
