Prior to Lakeside's purchase by the City in 1990, Lakeside Recreation Facility was a private swimming and tennis club. Lakeside now provides a public water park and indoor recreational space. This capability provides an added dimension to the services the City of Galesburg Parks and Recreation Department is able to provide, especially in the winter months.
