This lovely park with a large lake is in the center of the town of Florala. Has a nice paved walking loop that will take you all around the lake-about an hour long walk. Boating, fishing, swimming available. Picnic tables are heavily used in weekends.

Go here regular. Grandkids love the fact they can wade out in water. Doesn't offer extra water sports unless you bring your own. Great for canoes. Covered picnic tables. Good place for a day outing with family.

This is a nice place to go with family to have a picnic at the beach. Shallow warm clean water to swim in and plenty of sitting area. We just visited the the public beach area and it was well kept and clean.
