Lakebottom Park is a hub of activity whether the temperatures are soaring into the upper nineties or near freezing. I recently visited Lakebottom which is located between Garrard St and 13th Street and found people of all ages utilizing the walking trail. Mothers and infants were busy on the playground, a few brave souls were playing tennis and one lone sprinter was utilizing the track. Late afternoons, evenings and weekends you will find the ball fields filled to capacity and an occasional concert.
This is a great area for a brown bag lunch. It is a fantastic place to sit in the shade and watch the world go by for an hour. Driving around the park you will see some interesting architcture and homes in all price ranges. St. Elmo's shopping center is located on Garrard Street across from the park and now includes a bakery. It is always a great time to visit Lakebottom!
