The Town of Lakeside is a Statutory Town in Jefferson County, Colorado, United States, northwest of, and adjacent to, the City and County of Denver. The population was 20 at the 2000 census, making Lakeside the second least populous incorporated town in the State of Colorado.[5] The Denver Post Office (ZIP Code 80212) serves Lakeside.[4]

The town's namesake lake is Lake Rhoda, which covers 20% of its total area. A year after its incorporation on November 12, 1907, the Lakeside Amusement Park, nicknamed "White City", opened on the eastern shores. Both town and park were founded by a syndicate led by prominent Denver brewer Adolph Zang, who endeavored to build the resort just across the county line from Denver, and incorporate to move beyond the reach of Denver liquor laws. Also in town on the southern shore is Lakeside Mall, built in 1956. The amusement park, shopping mall, and lake occupy almost all the tiny municipality. Residences are limited to a handful of houses on the west side of Sheridan Boulevard, across the street from Denver.
