Lakeside Park is a home rule-class city[2] in Kenton County, Kentucky, in the United States. As of the 2010 U.S. census, the city had a total population of 2,668.


The area that is now Lakeside Park was part of a farm granted to John Leathers in 1785. During the Civil War, the Covington and Lexington Turnpike which passes through town was guarded by forts.[3] Lakeside Park was incorporated in 1930.[4] The first subdivisions were championed by Kenton County commissioner Paul Hesser, who also pushed for incorporation. It was strategically placed next to the Covington and Lexington Turnpike to prevent annexation by Fort Mitchell.[3]
