I go from time to time to this place, because it is a relaxing walk around the lake. They taking good care of all the decks and walkways. Also awesome to walk in the summer time, because of all the trees.

There are long and short walking trails around the lake. Also, bird blinds for viewing. We mainly saw ducks, crows and blue or red dragon flies. Others had seen moose and deer occasionally.
