HERE’S TO NEW BEGINNINGS

Let’s make every day extraordinary.

We designed Lakeside Park from the ground up to give you the freedom and flexibility to live with joy and confidence. Choose how you’d like to spend your days, and we’ll fill them with possibilities.

Dozens of classes make it easy to pursue personal interests or discover something new. Fitness and wellness programs keep the mind and body healthy, with plenty of ways to indulge yourself, too. Of course you can always enjoy the company of friends and family on the outdoor patio or during weekly outings to the neighborhoods nearby.

You set the pace and stay as active as you want to be. Whatever your needs and capabilities, we’ll make every day the best one yet.
