About this Location

Lakeshore Park offers visitors many activities and amenities. A fenced-in playground is available for children to enjoy a safe area under the watchful eye of parents and guardians. Horseshoe pits and volleyball courts are available as are bocce courts where local teams practice and play. A classic car show is held every Sunday through the summer and is one of the most popular in Northeast Ohio bringing dozens of great classic cars to the shores of Lake Erie each week. An 18 hole disc golf course can be used year round and is considered one of the most challenging that can be found. A large beach is also right on the shores of Lake Erie with lifeguards through the summer. Five pavilions are available with fabulous views for every type of family outing. A waterfowl pond offers visitors a chance to view beautiful white mute swans and a variety of mallard and other ducks. A pair of peacocks can also be seen.

The 54-acre Lakeshore Park is located primarily in Ashtabula Township, just east of downtown Ashtabula. The western portion is within Ashtabula city limits. The park’s access road, Lakeshore Drive, loops the grounds between Lake Road East (OH-531) at State Road and the intersection of Minnesota Avenue and East 1st Street.

The Ashtabula Township Park Commission-managed Lakeshore Park offers many passive and recreational amenities, including a 1,060-foot swimming beach, a 3-lane boat launch, over 55 vehicle/trailer parking spaces, playground area, waterfowl ponds, disc golf course and five picnic shelters. The 440-foot Lakeshore Park Main Pavilion is designated by the Ohio Historical Society as the oldest and longest pavilion on the Great Lakes in continuous use.
