There is a wonderful light display for Christmas every year. You drive through and then you are able to stop and visit Santa's Village. Lots of fun for the kids.

The autumn colors were spectacular and created a wonderful reflection on the lake. The visitor's center/gift shop is a must see just for the construction of the building. A cute addition is the bird house constructed in... More

It is my favorite place to trail run although there are lots of roots, etc to trip you up and last week with the fallen leaves I did take a bad fall.

I try to pick up my 6 1/2 year old grand daughter once a week and am running out of things to do to surprise her. Boy- I got this one right! Of course she was bored at the thought of another park but we got there at fall leave's peak. The minute we parked she was so in awe... More

There is nothing exciting to see here. The only reason to visit this park is because it is close to Greenville.

The "swimming hole" in the middle of the park took me back to my Boy Scout Summer Camp days, and my wife back to her time on the lake with the family. What a treasure, buried within the City Limits, but the City out of sight and mind. Go. You'll be glad you did.
