Revitalized Lakeside Park set to open next week

The revitalized Lakeside Park is set to open on Thursday August 31st at noon. 

St. Catharines Mayor Walter Sendzik says the event is open to everyone and includes giveaways and games, informative displays and free rides on the carousel. 

Upgrades to Lakeside Park include accessible washrooms, pavilion and playground and enhanced electrical and lighting systems, while new features include the Rotary Bandshell and a sun shelter. 

Work in Lakeside Park started December 2016 and was on track to wrap up in the spring of 2017 before high water levels in Lake Ontario delayed construction.
