An overall beautiful park. Great for wedding, prom and event photos. Water gardens and paths, and the largest Rose Garden in Fort Wayne. Catch it in all the seasons.

My husband and I spent over an hour at this beautiful park over Memorial Day weekend and we could have stayed longer. The gardens are beautiful, peaceful and serene. This place would be great for both families and couples to have a picnic lunch. Restroom facilities were available, next to the playground.

One goes to Lakeside Park for the beautiful flowers. There are walkways and fountains and benches to sit and do whatever you do best whilst sitting. There are no swings and slides there but I see folks fishing in the associated lake. It makes a nice photo excursion throughout the warm months.

This was the site of a wedding we attended. The roses were in bloom and the area was so lovely. Great area of kids to run off some steam as well!

A small but fun garden. Unique. More like something one would find in a major metropolitan area. Parking can be iffy, though.

Neat little garden worth the effort to see, especially when the roses are in bloom. We saw it in May of the year and enjoyed it, but could only imagine how beautiful it would have looked during blossom season.

We live a few streets away, but walk to Lakeside at least 3 nights a week. Best rose garden in Fort Wayne, period.
