We took a nice stroll around the lake on a Sunday afternoon. It was very enjoyable. There were a lot of people enjoying the park, but it did not feel crowded. There are a lot of trails and various activities.

Like to run well manicured trails? This is the place to do it. Run with a partner and lock your car.

Lake Paden has a great trail sound it that is wonderful to walk or run, dogs must be on leash. There is also a wonderful off leash trail that is about 2.5 miles long through the woods that is awesome for our four-legged friends to really enjoy. The park has a playground for kids, lots of picnic tables, benches to... More
