I have been going to the Lake since I was a baby. The lake has become overrun with various geese and ducks. As a result, it has become nearly impossible not to step in bird poop.

We always go to the 4th of July show and Christmas in the park every year. During the off season we like to walk the trails, look thru the old buildings, paddle-boats, feeding the ducks/geese and just relaxing looking at the beautiful lake while the kids play on the playground. People also play basketball or bring picnics and eat at... More

I have been several times and it's been closed. Don't know what's going on with it but normally a very nice park. We love to feed the ducks.

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.
