'Lakeside Park' is the name of a single from RUSH's third album 'Caress of Steel'. The song details Peart's memories of many summers spent at the park...
"In my early teens I achieved every Port kid’s dream: a summer job at Lakeside Park. In those days it was still a thriving and exciting whirl of rides, games, music, and lights. So many ghosts haunt that vanished midway; so many memories bring it back for me. I ran the Bubble Game, calling out ‘Catch a bubble; prize every time’ all day...and sometimes the Ball Toss game. When it wasn’t busy, I would sit at the back door and watch the kids on the trampoline. . . . I got fired." - Neil Peart, A Port Boy’s Story; Merely Players
