Why is the neighborhood Lakeside called "Lakeside" when there's no lake? Took friends from out of town up there last week, had no explanation to offer when they asked, "so where's the lake?" - @heywren

There is a lake -- two or three of them in fact. None are obvious from Lakeside Avenue. Which one puts the "lake" in Lakeside? The correct attribution for the namesake is the lake at Jefferson Lakeside Country Club.

Lakeside is in Henrico County, not the City of Richmond -- located just north of the city line at Bryan Park, west of Interstate 95, east of Staples Mill Road and South of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.
Speaking of the garden, they have a fantastic library and I got help from librarian Janet Woody, who wrote to me:

"Lewis Ginter named his wheel club Lakeside Wheel Club in 1895, then later built Lakeside Park on the other side of the lake. The lake was created when a creek was dammed at the site of an old mill pond. Over time, the bike trail from town to the park became known as Lakeside Avenue. The bike trail was described as 'smoothly packed cinders' and stretched from Broad Street to Hermitage Road, parallel to the Boulevard. Lakeside Park offered a café, casino, billiards, bowling alleys, fishing, waterfowl, a bear pit, and deer. At some point, golf was added to liven things up."

She added "Searching the online newspaper database Chronicling America, I do not find any reference to 'Lakeside' before Ginter’s wheel club opened in 1895. In March 1895, a classified ad offered a small farm for sale near Lakeside Park. I was not able to find any other references to Lakeside Park until Ginter opened his park in 1896."
Major Lewis Ginter is my favorite figure in Richmond history. There is little that you will see in post-Civil War Richmond that hasn’t been in some way influenced by Ginter or someone connected to him. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that he is the “Greatest Richmonder of All Time” and certainly my favorite historical figure in our city’s 400+ years of existence.

Ginter has a long list of accomplishments and philanthropic gestures, according to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden: 25 Years and Growing by Frank L. Robinson and Lynn Kirk (available at the LGBG library):

In 1884-88, acquired land for his visionary Northside suburbs, creating the neighborhoods of Bellevue Park, Sherwood Park and Ginter Park, the “Queen of the Suburbs.”
In 1890 when he was in the tobacco business, Ginter and partner John F. Allen merged with four other manufacturers: W. Duke, Sons and Company; William S. Kimball and Company; Kinney Tobacco; and Goodwin and company to form the American Tobacco Company — a forerunner of today’s Philip Morris USA.
In 1892, financed construction of narrow-gauge railroads in Richmond’s Northside for hauling stone from his quarries at Young’s Pond (now Bryan Park) — spurring development of the Richmond Locomotive Works.
Personally financed and supervised construction of the majestic and perennial five-star Jefferson Hotel, which opened in 1895.
In 1896, created Lakeside Park, which quickly became a streetcar destination for bicyclists and outdoor excursions. The area is now Jefferson-Lakeside Country Club.
In 1897, Ginter’s Richmond Railway and Electric Company distinguished Richmond as the nation’s first city with an electric streetcar system. The company’s power plant was a precursor to today’s Dominion Virginia Power.
Gifted land that eventually became for Richmond’s Joseph Bryan Park and also Northside’s Union Theological Seminary (celebrating 200 years in 2012), when it moved from Hampden-Sydney College.
Purchased the Richmond Daily Times newspaper — which he later gave to his attorney and friend Joseph Stewart Bryan. The paper eventually became the Richmond Times-Dispatch and was the beginnings of Media General Inc.
