A wonderful place to walk with your pet, your friend, or by yourself. The park is connected to walking trails that are mostly wooded but not a rough walk.

We had a fabulous time at the lake today. We went originally to pedal boat, but then found out that they also have kayak rentals so we did that too! They even have a handicap accessible kayak dock. The prices are very reasonable.

This park is absolutely gorgeous and offers so many activities for the entire family. The trails are great, both for running and biking. You can check out Elizabethtown Tourism's website, or the Greenspace website for maps of the trails offered here. The park has an 18-disc golf course for anyone who wishes to play Frisbee golf, as well as sand... More

The trail around the lake is a good ride; the grandkids can go with. It is just perfect for a non technical rider. During the holidays, the Christmas lights make a nice drive thru.

This was a nice park, but it was still wet from the rain when we went. There was lots to do, but the weather made it difficult to fully enjoy. My daughter did have the opportunity to play on a few of the children's toys, though she walked away with a wet butt! If we were to return to Elizabethtown... More

Very nice light show and representation of local banks, stores, hospitals, insurance agents, car dealers, churches and all other business and places of establishment. Lots of OOOOs and AAAAs from our kids.

I really love the walking/running trails it is a change from running on a sidewalk or a track. The trail has hills and shade one one side running on the park side of the lake is all open and can be rough in the summer due to lack or shade

We take the kids every year to look at the Christmas lights. It's nice unless the person behind you don't shut off their headlights or you are behind a diesel truck!
