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.

This is a place that is nice for family outings anytime of the year, but the light show at Christmas time is spectacular.

There are very nice tennis courts as well. I ride my bike there frequently. The trail around the lake is about five and a half miles with additional trails available if you want an extra... More

Nice area to do just about anything. There are several parks with plenty of gazeebos and picnic tables. There is a fishing pond along with plenty of areas for joggers, or those who want to enjoy the scenery at a more leisurely pace. There is also a disc golf ( frisbee golf) course as well. Although bring extra frisbees just... More
