Located in Port Dalhousie Ward, Lakeside Park offers1,500 feet of sandy beach, picnic area, carousel, concessions, playground equipment, dressing rooms, washrooms and parking area, pavilion, Waterfront Trail and Port Dalhousie Harbour Walkway. This park is 5.3 hectares.
Planning a get-together or searching for a location for wedding photos? Permits are available for this park for those purposes.
In the interest of public safety, access to the Lakeside Park Pavilion is restricted.
An inspection of the structural integrity of the pavilion conducted by a third-party engineering firm determined that deterioration of the existing structure combined with winter elements like snow accumulation and high winds necessitate closure of the pavilion to reduce the risk to the public.
City staff have installed a fence around the perimeter of the pavilion, which will remain in place until the identified safety issues have been addressed.
A staff report on the pavilion will be presented to City Council by the end of March.
