“Park with variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Great location, accessible by trolley in the summer. Nice beach, great grassy area and flower gardens, concession open in season. Great walk along the lake.

“Covered in goose excrement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Lakeside Park would be awesome were it not covered in goose excrement all summer. Too bad the good burghers of Nelson didn't decide to ban Canada geese instead of dogs. There would be less excrement in the parks. Lakeside Park beach is unusable because the sand and water is fouled by goose excrement. The city should get its priorities in order.

“Lakeside Concession with a difference”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Lakeside Park in Nelson is a delightful treed park with gardens, playgrounds, a lovely sandy beach and more. AND you can eat at the concession - on tables with tablecloths and from a menu that includes wild salmon burgers, tofu fries, soya ice cream as well as the standard hot dogs etc. A unique and great meal... while in your bathing suit.
