Additions Coming to Lakeside Park

Lakeside Park is set to see some new additions in the near future. The city is looking at creating a splash pad play area, along with a new pavilion. 

Jordan Skiff with the Department of Public Works says the new facility will be a big upgrade, and might even include a balcony for views of the lake. Skiff tells us “it will basically be a reconstruction of the pavilion facility that’s out there. Make it a little bit bigger, but be more modern and hopefully flow better and just be a real show piece for the park.”

Skiff adds that volunteers have been slowly, but surely working to clean up the park following the major spring fish kill. He hopes it will be mostly cleared up by the time Walleye Weekend rolls around.
