A Band Shell is located near the lake and plays host to concerts, church services, celebrations and other civic events through out the year. A beautiful Colonial Style Shoofly was built near the lake, providing a peaceful place to idle away summer hours.
New Playground Equipment was also added, in addition to the swing sets and the ever-popular merry-go-round. The Lake Shore Park also features several Horseshoe Pits for those who enjoy the sport and competition. More recently, the Tennis Courts were resurfaced for better play.
