Also see . . .  Washington Park. The Park was officially established in the 1870s, and the present-day Lakehouse was built in 1929 to replace the original structure. The Park has many features in the style of Central Park creator Frederick Law Olmsted, including the footbridge and monuments, although the Park was not actually designed by Olmsted himself.
