Goldilocks said it best... so we call this the lake which is "just right." Full of joggers at certain times of the day, frequented by bikers (both commuters and excercisers) almost always, and visited by the occasional loon. It is generally a quiet lake, and the view never seems to be the same from day to day. The beaches seem to be well-loved, and the boating is obviously quite popular. The bandshell is an amazing place, given the frequency of presentations and shows there, and you can't beat the idea of a free outdoor movie on the weekend. Also, the food is excellent, and often quite unique.
