On the national register of historic places, this park has something for EVERYONE! It's surprising that so many of the reviews are about food when this is a park. Yes there is a wonderful bistro with food, but it's a glorious park first and foremost. So much work was done recently to update stairways, bridges, equipment, and facilities that is a showcase. There are 3 entrances but none of them connect to each other, so at some point, you have to choose a parking lot and walk. There are paved trails through the park so you can get from one side to the other. There is a self pay golf course, lawn bowling green, tennis courts, soccer fields, a beautiful new stage if you want to put on your very own theater production, new playground equipment for 2 different age groups, picnic tables, hiking trails that link to the Locus st. ravine, stairs to the lakefront (about 90) for those who want to get their exercise in, and dogs are welcome as long as they are on a leash. In Fall, you have a great view of the lake from almost any part of the bluff, but in summer you can see it from the huge staircase or the bridge at the lake side of the park. For photographers, they have a nice waterfall in a ravine, as well as some historic structures that make nice photos. Whew! So much to do for all ages.
The park also has an interesting history you can read more about at the friends' website, http://www.lakeparkfriends.org/history.shtml
