Montrose Ave is eight miles north of the Water Tower. Lakeshore Park is at its widest here, between 1/4 and 1/2 mile. There's a marina, a nine hole golf course, a beach with boat rentals, and a concrete jetty going another 1/4 mile out into the lake. Just south of the golf course is a bird sanctuary. There are several ball fields (soccer, softball), tennis courts. On weekends the park fills up with ball players, barbeques, bikers, skaters, runners, and walkers.
