We always love to bring visitors here, the view of the lake is beautiful and the promenade is well cared for and well used by walkers, joggers, and boot camps. Concerts and car shows too! Decorated for Christmas but is dated but still pretty.

No charge. Just park in the public spots and walk around. Fun to see all the different water birds and the Texas Cattle Co is great for dinner, then a walk around the lake! Enjoy!
