The past few years have given us all a new appreciation and perspective on the importance of our parks and open space. Lakeshore Park has become a place of refuge and serenity, but higher use also puts a strain on the resources to keep the park clean and safe. Here are a few ways to support your park!


Your support is critical for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build and maintain this park for future generations. By giving to the Lakeshore Park Conservancy, you are investing in the future of your community and our beloved city. Any amount is welcome and appreciated.
