We have enjoyed the views, wind and solitude of watching the boats skim across the waves. We get a nice walk in the sun and usually stop for lunch at one of the restaurants and watch the lake from inside. If you are a bike rider then by all means try out of the trails. Great place to spend part... More

My husband and I like to drive over to the lake just to taken in the sunset and watch the people. There are times when we don't even get out of the car since the parking lots are so close to the lake in some areas. The view across the lake is so restful and relaxing, the sailboats skimming across... More

Great place for families and kids! Small but still beautiful! Lot of people biking and jogging when weather is good. Three restaurants nearby for a good meal! Nice hangout for an evening! Nice place to walk by the lakeside!

There are many restaurants around the Lake. A great walking, biking and running trail. Boats and fishing. Large play area for children and their pets, a beautiful view!

When I first bought my bike, I decided to take it to Lake Hefner and ride it around. I figured I would ride a couple miles and turn around (since it had been years since I rode a bike...as a kid), but it wasn't long until I was all the way around the lake and back at my car. 10... More

I absolutely love this place. The lighthouse is where I told my wife(wife to be at that point) that I loved her for the first time. So needless to say this place is one of our favorites. Also, the running trails rock.

Lake Hefner is a gem of a recreation area right in the heart of the city. There is a paved path around the entire lake that is great for walking, running, and biking. There are also numerous parks and open spaces that are located surrounding the trails and lake. There are numerous boat docks around the lake. Several boats are... More

I love the distance of the trail which is a little over ten miles. I enjoy taking my dog to the dog park! I enjoy watching the kite surfers on Sundays! I dislike there are a lot of cars being burglarized at this park! I dislike there aren't hardly any water or bathroom options.

I like to drive up to Hefner around Stars and Stripes park area and walk around on a summer evening. They have alot of benches in nice areas for sunset views by the lake bed. Cool to go up when winds are really high also and bend into the wind standing on lake bed also.
