The park is nicely landscaped and well maintained. Upgrades are currently in progress, like a winding walk way. There is a nice fish fry on Friday's at the pavilion building. Our grandchildren enjoy the play grounds (sized for various age groups), climbing the stairs of the light house, the wonderful holiday light show and decorations through out the park. Many... More

We like to ride our bikes along the Loop bike trail to the park. A little time at the playground, do the train and merry-go-round, visit the animals at the petting zoo, then ride to the lighthouse for a lovely view of the lake. Keeps the kids happy and not too hard on grandma. We take snacks along, but there... More

Lakeside park is a beautiful park with a multitude of flower gardens and walking paths. Enjoy a walk along the Lake Winnebago shore line at sunset, you won't be disappointed. There is plenty of family fun with a large playground, amusement rides, soccer fields, and baseball diamonds. It is a popular place for family and wedding photos, the fountain and... More

In the summer you will find people fishing almost everywhere along the shore, there is a mini zoo with deer and some small animals. Kids will enjoy the train ride through the park, the merry go round, the swings, slides, and... More

This park is a little step back in time. The retro amusement rides are endearing, and the views are awesome. Everything was so nicely maintained, and our lunch at the grille was good, too. I'm not a big fan of petting zoos in general, but this one wasn't too heartbreaking. $1/ride tickets seemed a little steep, to me. But, I... More

Cute park with beautiful views of the lake. Great for families and couples. One issue there was so much dog poop all over the grassy areas. It's really a shame some people do not clean up after their pets.
