Bring the family out for fun at Fond du Lac's 400-acre Lakeside Park, on Lake Winnebago, one of the country's largest inland lakes.

Walk-up lighthouse, picnic area, shelters, pavilion, playground, zip line, petting zoo, ball diamonds, marina, rides, boat-launch ramps, handicapped-accessible fishing platforms, new boat dock on Oven Island, Lakeside park segment of the Fond du Lac Loop, and kayak and pedal boat rentals. Also includes a fountain, large playground equipment area with an accessible playground, concessions, full-service marina and gazebos. 

Visitors can take nostalgic rides on the miniature train and enjoy the antique carousel. Two separate launches; one with a four-lane concrete ramp, loading piers and parking for 20 rigs and the other launch with two concrete ramps, loading piers, and large black and top parking. 

Park glows with thousands of holiday lights and animated displays including holiday music each December.
