“Great views. Nice place to take a walk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Nice place to talk a walk in the off season. Parking in the area is by permit during the summer so it can be difficult to find a place to park. Off season there are places to park and go out and walk. It is a beautiful waterview area with very nice homes. There are ducks but frankly I don't like them nor do I like dealing with their feces so avoid them. However, there are parrots in the trees, monk parrots I believe I heard them called, they are said to have escaped from a wrecked pirate ship and inhabit this area. I have been going down to see them since I was a child and I am never disppointed.

“Dirty Dirty--West Nile Central”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

...and loaded with bugs. You'll get bitten to death without Deet on your skin. Can only really use the lake if you're a property owner because most access points are through private property. Maybe there are two places around the entire lake that you can use. And the water is green to brown in color.

“Serene......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

A very lovely spot to watch the water, see beautiful homes and in the colder months observe the geese, ducks and other water fowl.

“Just a Man Made Lake...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

with million dollar properties that most of us could never afford :(...I wouldn't consider this a tourist attraction...just something you drive by and say "oh look what a nice little lake".
