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.

Hefner is one of the most beautiful places to watch the sunset, it is more than awesome , you can also take a walk along the river and enjoy the breathtaking views of Hefner. Every time I visit this place I feel very relaxed, worth a visit if are in Oklahoma City

My family & I enjoy Hefner lake often during the summer. We have small children and it's a great place to go since they can enjoy all the new play equipment that was added to Stars & Stripes park. Wow, was I impressed! Not only did my kids love the large rockets ship slides but, it was big enough for... More

Talk about activities that are available, or just relaxing and watching the water. And then when leaving take the drive down Grand, beautiful.

Great for a stroll after dinner. Nice smooth trails go around the entire lake. Parts of the trail system is a bit 'wooded' but mostly it is out in the open. There are also a few parks that have nice, new equipment for the kiddos. Plenty of places to lay down a blanket for a picnic or bring some hotdogs... More
