Nicest lake in OKC metro

Pretty nice and clean area great for picnics, bbq, fishing, or bike riding. I have never been in a boat but it seems like there is adequate ramps to launch.

Since moving to Oklahoma City we pretty much live on the lake. It is so nice for boating, the parks are very nice and safe for young children. Plenty of nice restaurants around.

This is a beautiful lake in our City. It has several restaurants around it that are all good, it depends on your taste buds. Hefner has a long bicycle trail that is enjoyed by young and older individuals. Try it out! You will be pleasantly surprised of the beauty along the lake. Dona

Go here to cycle, run or walk. Now that the water level is back to normal it is a beautiful sight. Ample parking. Great park equipment for kids and families.

Located within the city, 10 miles of paved trails, make for a great marathon training run or leisurely bike ride. There are two playgrounds, a sailing center, and several restaurants to dine at.
