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!

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. However, it hosts concerts, festivals , etc. There are pavilions for picnics (can be reserved for private events, reasonably priced), walking trails, paddle boats, historic one room school house and log cabin....

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. The advertising was more prominent than those at the Riverside Park in Brandenburg which was a bit of a drawback. At the B.burg display the central... More

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.
