This is a lovely little lake really close to the beach and ocean. At any time of the year, you will find a variety of birds there. You can walk around it or ride a bike around it. The gazebos add a lovely touch to the scene but they are privately owned.

There is a new Historical Marker by Silver Lake near the bird sanctuary. It is very informative. If you like this area and would like more information visit www.sola3.org

Silver Lake is a very pleasant part of Rehoboth Beach. I've walked around it hundreds of times over the last 40 years and it's always beautiful. I've also kayaked on it and ridden a bike around it. It's simply beautiful in every season of the year.

Many other reviewers have captured the beauty of Silver Lake, but sadly seem unaware that if they just keep walking away from the ocean and follow the lake, they will come to a beautiful park, complete with a footbridge over the lake. The "Silver Lake Tot Lot" is really so much more than a tot lot. It's the best place... More

This lake is in the area between Dewey and Rehoboth. I believe it is Bayard Avenue. You cannot see this from Rt 1 you have to travel between the two towns to see it. This is a good sized lake and there are gazebos and numerous luxury homes across the street from it. It is kind of confusing to know... More

Before I came to Rehoboth Beach I saw Silver lake on the map and decided to walk there. It was a mile and a half away. I walked down Bayard ave and as I approached it, I was not disappointed. The lake was gorgeous and there were benches and gazebos around the Lake and I was told, by someone who... More

There's a small, very slow road that runs beside Coastal Highway for awhile. Look to the east and you will see a lake that's home to geese and ducks and high-priced "cottages". It's lovely. This is not a spot for anyone who is in fast-paced mode. It's for bicycles, runners, people on a walk with children or dogs or just... More

I rented a bike to ride to Silver Lake. There is a public road, but no place to just sit and relax to enjoy the lake. The homes are nice. It was a little hilly and/or I was out of shape. It's can be very humid.
