A popular place for weddings. I am a photographer & have been there more than once. LAke Side is gorgeous during the time when roses are in bloom, They do have I believe usually more than 50 varieties & the colors are breathtaking! The prettiest area is the sunken garden/pools/gazebo area, The reflection pools are very beautiful & relaxing near them is a nice time. The openess of Lake Side which makes it what it is also is a negative, especiall during the summer months. There is shade, but not in the area mentioned above. You will need to walk approx. 30-50 feet to get to the shade. For weddings, the guests are seated in the direct sun, so if it's hot bring an umbrella or wear a latge brinned hat ro provide shade. Restroom facilities, if open, approx. 500 ft. from the garden area. The park area has a pavillion & sports area for basketball & outdoor sports. Picnic tables are scattered about the park under shade trees. The walkin paths are smooth & inviting. When visiting, a walk thru the adjoining neighborhood is highly trcommended. Theolder homes are some of the finest & grandest in the Fort Wayne area dating back to the early 1900s. You can spend nearly a day relazing & enjoying the floral displays & neighborhood.
