This is truly a crown jewel in the city of Lorain, make time to visit. Whether you dine in the restaurant, spend time at the beach, or visit the beautiful rose gardens, it is worth the trip.

Lakeview Beach Park is operated by the Lorain County Metro Parks and is located on Lake Erie near downtown Lorain. The park has several pavilions, a beautiful rose garden, catering hall overlooking the lake, a magnificent beach, volleyball tournaments and more. If you are in the area it is a must see.

It's a beautiful beach. I took my granddaughter and she loved it. We made sand sculptures in different parts. Can hardly wait until next summer! And the roses are spectacular.

This is a great place to relax and take in a beautiful sunset over Lake Erie. There's playground equipment for the children. Don't forget to walk through the beautiful rose garden. It's a highlight of the park.

Beautiful park along Lake Erie, well maintained beach, Make sure to visit the Rose Garden, hundreds of beautiful blooms. The big basket is a hit with families at Easter time!
