Lakeside Amusement Park is a family-owned amusement park in Lakeside, Colorado, adjacent to Denver. Originally named White City, it was opened in 1908 as a popular amusement resort adjacent to Lake Rhoda by the Denver Tramway, making it a trolley park. The amusement park was soon sold to Denver brewer Adolph Zang. Eventually the name was changed to Lakeside Amusement Park, but the local populace kept referring to it by its original name for its glittering original display of over 100,000 lights. Today it is one of only thirteen trolley parks operating and one of the oldest amusement parks in the United States, and the oldest still running in Colorado. The park, comprising nearly half of the Town of Lakeside that it was responsible for creating in 1907, features the landmark Tower of Jewels.Add Lakeside Amusement Park and other attractions to your Denver trip itinerary using our Denver online trip itinerary builder.

I Love Lakeside. As a Colorado native I have been coming here for almost 40 years. It's an affordable way to spend the day with the family. They are trying new a set up where you pay at the entrance instead inside the park, which I liked because It was more efficient. The rides and the park feel safe to me. The food and drinks are very reasonably priced. The lines are usually short even when the park is full. The best part is that history and the architecture.
Love this place. Cheap and fun, and my kids love it! Enough kiddie rides for the small one and enough excitement for the older one. Definitely go in the evening. My family had a fantastic time and will be returning. As a Denver native Lakeside is a staple in my family going back generations, and has co tongued in to the generation
