Facility Upgrades Continue in Lakeside

Posted on April 22, 2019

Lakeside is making final preparations for another unforgettable summer. These plans wouldn't be possible without the continued passion and financial support you give, ensuring a bright future for Lakeside. Many improvements, designated by the Master Plan, are currently underway:

Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo: Electrical upgrades have been installed. Permeable pavers will replace the loose rock surface and include new bench seating. The gazebo will receive a fresh coat of paint, new roof and landscaping in the coming weeks.

Sports Courts in Bettinger Park: Electrical lines have been buried to support new lighting in the park. The basketball and multi-purpose courts have been redesigned and poured, and the sand volleyball court now has better drainage and a new curb to ensure safety. To elevate youth programming, Lakeside’s Recreation staff is organizing basketball and volleyball clinics and tournaments this summer.

Pickleball Center: Officially opened in April! Final touches are still being made to the facility, including landscaping.

Lago Coastal Cafe: The restaurant will feature a walk-up window for carryout service, an indoor café dining experience and shaded outdoor seating.

Lakeside's Maintenance Department works diligently in the winter and spring to complete projects that maintain, secure and protect our existing buildings and facilities. Significant investments are made each year by both staff and third-party contractors:

  • Continuing the work started last year at Wo-Ho-Mis Lodge to update the roof and masonry work.
  • Refresh the exterior of Orchestra Hall with roof repairs.
  • Hotel amenities have been updated in Fountain Inn hotel rooms.
  • Wesley Lodge interior work.
  • Replaced electrical panel in Hoover Auditorium.
