Lakeside Avenue is an eclectic mix of very close knit neighborhoods, parks, and a
dynamic mix of small businesses, all sharing the rich historic heritage as one of
Richmond’s first “suburbs”.
Here in Lakeside you’ll find a warm welcoming “small town”community very reminiscent
of days gone by, yet vibrant and very much “today”.
Void mostly of the cookie cutter chain stores and restaurants that dot other parts
of the city, Lakeside is home to many small owner-operated businesses catering to
every possible need. In most of the shops and offices, the owners themselves are
there to welcome you and to provide a level of service most thought was long ago
