Gazebo Upgrades Taking Place

Posted on October 05, 2018

Last year, many Lakesiders gave gifts on #GivingTuesday to help renovate the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo. Because of your generosity, we will be gathering at a refreshed Gazebo next summer for family concerts, activities and weddings.

As we exit our busy season of events and activities, the park is being prepared for construction teams to arrive and get to work on revamping the Gazebo for next summer. To improve the aesthetics of the space, a fresh coat of white paint will be added, along with a new roof. Our Grounds Crew will enhance the landscaping with new shrubs this fall and add new perennial and annual flowers in the spring.

To help make the venue more accessible and safe for all Lakesiders, a permeable paver system, along with an even foundation and new grass, will be installed before adding new benches. The electrical system is also being upgraded so that Lakesiders can enjoy a higher-quality sound system for concerts, weddings and lectures.

Thank you again for your generosity to enhance this special gathering space. If the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo has played a special part in your family’s Lakeside experience, there’s still time support the project by visiting or calling (419) 798-4461, ext. 246 to make a gift.
