They really are trying to make this a major attraction to the area. Walking paths, restaurants, lots of lake activities. Gets full weekend summers.

This is a nice place to go for a quiet walk or just to watch the sunset over the lake. It's clean and well-maintained.

Hefner lake is a great place to go to escape the city for a bit. It is about 9 miles around the circumference, and is very flat. It is a nice place to go for a walk after dinner, or to jog or bike. Sometimes when we are in a drought (often) the water level is low, which is kind... More

Be sure & take your own water & snacks, because there is only one area that has restaurants. i dislike the fact that in the whole 9+ miles, there's only 2 porta-potties. if you're walking the...
