This is a nice little park with rose gardens and ponds that have paths you can walk around. I've seen a few weddings there too. It is right next to a beautiful historic neighborhood (Forest Park, I think) We walk through there too. Just a nice relaxing place :)

Pretty in the summer, good play ground for children. Nice central location in Fort Wayne. Plenty of tables and benches for relaxing and watching the ducks

The park is small with the rose area, court areas, and a small pond. This is probably the smallest Fort Wayne park but the rose and flower areas extremely well taken care of and beautiful. However, if you do not go in the early morning then the traffic noise will over take the sceneries as people cruise to and from... More

lovely little park, but its covered in goose poop, on pair of pretty white swans would keep that "lake" clear of the geese and your sidewalks and grass would be much cleaner

When in season you will want to come here, many weddings are preformed here with the beauty of the park. On weekends parking can be of a challenge

We love riding our bikes to this area where we never fail to enjoy the well groomed rose bushes and other flowers in the park. Lakeside Park had a legacy in our town for happy gatherings and beautiful surroundings. Lots of great memories made here, and look forward to many more weddings, graduations, and other events to attend! We very... More

My husband and I got married here several years ago when all the flowers were in full bloom. Everywhere you go, you are surrounded by beautiful rose gardens and the smell is heavenly. Our photographer was able to take some beautiful pictures near the pond with a fountain in the background. There were also architectural and floral archways and garden... More

This place is beautiful in the spring and summer. We have had our pictures done there a few times. But watch out for some shady/questionable people walking by.
