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!

When we have out of town ers visit, this is a must see. It is located right in the middle of town and is our community water supply.

Many lovely light displays. Many more than Brandenburg, Kentucky with the lake as a backdrop for many. After Christmas however many were not lit and it would have been nice to see them all.

Everything a park should be ~ large lake, play and picnic areas, shelters, boats to rent, fishing, beautiful scenery, and a great Christmas light show. I really appreciate the 5-mile running/walking trail ~ pretty well marked, challenging, and scenic.

Freeman Lake is where all the locals go year round to not only fish, but to take their morning runs & long leisurely walks around the paths. Lots of geese & ducks so watch where you step. Lots of parking! Check their site for yearly events such as their 4th of July fireworks and their Christmas lights show (wind through... More

The setting was good. The lake was pretty. But the trails could be paved to avoid getting muddy. And the trash cans could be changed more, especially after a windy day that tipped some over.

I have been coming to this park for over 25 years now. I love having someplace the family can go to enjoy being outside.

Paths are nice for a stroll and there are children's play areas. Benches here and there. The trees and other vegetation are not inspiring.

The park has had a lot of improvements over the past two years. They have nice barbecue facilities for cook outs during the summer. Christmas time is awesome when you can drive thru at night time and see all the dioramas that have been built by local businesses and don't forget to sit your radio to holiday music.
