Great post, Katie! So fun that we can still go to Lakeside and look back at the features from the past, too. The photos are great. I used to love to go to Kennywood in PA when I lived in Pittsburgh-- similar history. Wish I could have gone to Coney Island in it's heyday, too. Historic amusement parks are so fascinating! I always have to visit the historic penny arcade on Pier 45 when visiting San Francisco. Thanks for highlighting our own gem!

Thanks for reading and commenting, Genine! It's fun to have our own version of Coney Island right here in Denver!

Shame how this once great park has fallen into such dingy disrepair. Train is out. Many rides aren't staffed. The miniature golf course is a junkyard. Then there's the shell of the old Speedway. I wonder how closely it ever gets inspected anymore. Such an eyesore.

Thanks for reading and posting your comments, John. We hope you enjoyed the photos from the park's earlier days!

Aww - I was there last night and found it lovely! We had a great time riding the carousel, the Dragon, and the train!

Sounds like a perfect evening!

How can I get your book of photos call The History of Lakeside Amusement Park in Photos, where can I buy one?

Thanks for your question, Geneva! While DPL has not published a book of Lakeside Amusement Park photos, we do offer reproductions of our historic photos for purchase. Please visit our image purchasing page for more information. 

i remember the old Fun House with the laughing lady out front. The air being blown under the girls dresses. Also the Monkey cage. I am surprised we weren't killed in there. Fond Memories!
