This summer was full of amazing memories: children and adults making a splash at the new Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus; individuals experiencing inspiring worship services and educational lectures; families creating masterpieces together at the Rhein Center; and friends challenging one another in various recreational activities.
What were your favorite Lakeside highlights this summer?
In the final days of this year, we invite you to give a gift that will help continue these special memories for you, your family and thousands of families for years to come.
Your Favorite Experience at Lakeside

Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo
#GivingTuesday was a huge success in raising funds for the revitalization of this special space on Ohio's Most Beautiful Mile. There's still time to contribute to this project to help create special memories at the Gazebo.
Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus Landscaping &
As the Wellness Center enters its final stages of construction, we plan to enhance and expand the landscaping around the facility. Additionally, we're preparing for a new native prairie garden across the street, on the corner of Laurel Avenue and Sixth Street. This new site will not only be a great educational
tool and restorative garden, but it will promote sustainability at Lakeside.
