The lighthouse is non-functional but you can walk up it and have a nice view. This is a park for people to walk, picnic and play. So it is a busy place.

The lighthouse has history for most fdl residents going back to our childhood. The water views, lagoons, flowers trees, boats, playground, and rides. A great place to take a walk, a slow drive, watch the boats and skiers or just sit by the lighthouse and think..I cant say enough about it, if you've never been there take a drive. Walk... More

This park is just plain beautiful! In the spring, the apple blossoms offer an array of pinks and white that line the channels and lagoon. In the fall, the colors are spectacular! At Christmas time, the park is decorated and transformed into a winter wonderland--and the drive through it is FREE! Summer picnics are so much fun at Lakeside Park,... More

My wife and I really enjoy taking walks. It was nice to see Lakeside had new trails that even passed near the lake. It makes it really easy on the ankles. The view is always nice there. The new bridge is nice too!

We took a drive down to Lakeside Park from the dog show, and wish we would've had more time to take the dogs down there to wander around. It is quite lovely, lots of ability to wander and look at the sites plus walk alongside the water. We would go back there again next time we're in town.

Year round wonder at the Foot of Lake Winnebago. Take a drive, walk, run, paddle through this park and you will discover something breathtaking scenery every season. Go early morning, throughout the day and evening hours. Great place to unplug from the fast pace rush of life. The new walking/running path was put in along the lakeshore. Morning visits, it...

This is a nice park with a wide variety of activities. It's on the lake so there are a number of piers. They have a small gage railway for rides, a nice zoo, picnic shelters, ball fields and a playground. There is lots of parking and paved walking trails. They even have a snack bar by the zoo.

Lovely park on the lake the lighthouse is interesting and its nice to visit. We have driven by the park during the Christmas season, which was great. Unfortunately it's not so great to walk by the lake during the summer and try to dodge goose poop. It was everywhere from the water to the road. Save your shoes and stay... More
