Lakeside’s one square mile waterfront community is a Chautauqua community that welcomes all to the beauty of the Lake Erie shore and islands. Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, Lakeside is a unique place bringing together families and friends to enjoy the same sustaining values and traditions learned as a child.  Since 1873, it has provided a Chautauqua summer experience dedicated to spiritual growth and renewal, educational and cultural enrichment, and recreational pursuits.

OAGC is planning a Gardeners’ Day Out for Friday, August 20 beginning at 9AM. The cost per person also includes access to the pool and wellness center, shuffle board and nightly park concerts. The Northwest Ohio Gladiolus Society show will be on Saturday so stay over if you wish in one of the discounted hotels. Your $35 GDO fee includes an entrance pass for Lakeside that runs through Saturday at 7PM. To come on Thursday your fee will be $50 and will also run till Saturday at 7PM.

Cars are kind of a nuisance in Lakeside (parking is very limited), so leave your car in the available parking lot. You then take a free shuttle to your meeting place. Most people walk, bike, or drive golf carts around Lakeside. OAGC plans to have some golf carts available for us. Everyone must stop to show a pass on the way in — and out. This pass is part of your GDO package. It’s like a 1950s neighborhood. The grounds are safe. See their website for complete details on the Covid policy. You may wish to enjoy the $3.5 million aquatic center with a kiddie pool and splash park, a giant fenced-in playground, Shuffleboard and a swimming beach on Lake Erie with kayaks available to rent. There are ice cream shops, 7 quaint restaurants to enjoy your nightly dinner on your own and many eclectic shops to explore. WITH ALL THIS TO FEED YOUR SOUL, THERE ARE ALSO 19+ GARDENS FOR OUR TOURING PLEASURE AND MOST OF THE QUAINT HOMES HAVE BEAUTIFUL UNIQUE LANDSCAPING! And of course the Lake Erie shore!
