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.

Freeman lake park is a quiet lakeside park that has nice walking and biking trails, shelters for picnics and cookouts, fishing, paddle boats, and playgrounds. 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

We are new to the area and I was looking for a place nearby for some easy access paddle boarding. Freeman lake is perfect. Close to everything yet peaceful and safe. Lots of wildlife. We always see grounds keepers and the police officers who patrol it are friendly and helpful. Happy to have a place like this right down the... More

5 miles of trails. Some gravel, some blacktop, and some dirt. Pedestrians walking have right of way. Great views with lots of ducks and geese. Places to cook, and some historic sights. We biked and it was moderate due to hills and tree roots. Some people fishing and some in paddle boats.

Freeman Lake Park has great trails all the way around the lake. The lake is maintained and seems to be fairly clean. It has several grills and picnic areas with some shelter/pavilion structures. If you want to fly a kite, play catch, or eat a picnic, this is a great place for that.

Just arrived from Europe, the Lake affords a fantastic opportunity for weekly Mountain Biking with my son. Not too difficult, great inclines and straights, the Lake and surrounding areas are beautiful. Pretty well maintained, the Paths are not smoothed but overall a great experience.

Just did a 5k on Saturday - realized that they have put in awesome tennis courts - the pavilions are generally very clean, bathrooms are kept up, the mowing is done regularly - I have taken photo shoots of my clients here, most beaufitul in the fall. Lots of volleyball courts, the boat rentals are super cheap and it is... More
