after waiting years for the evergreens to fill in, they decided to take off the bottom branches of the only trees used for windbreaks. so sad. it sure makes for cold walks. It was such a nice place to walk.

Nice place for a lunchtime picnic, a quiet walk or some fishing off of the deck. A nice pathway for a walk or jog, and connects to longer bike trails.

The best kept secret in the area... the track! I love it. The track has a slight hill slope built in so you are getting a diverse use of your leg muscles. I am often there to relax as I write my book.

From what I've heard there are lots of homeless that camp in the back area. The front area is nice, pretty docks and a canoe filled with flowers. Disappointed this year because it's filled with fake flowers and looks stupid.

Terrific Park District staff and great place to bird watch especially during Spring migration and Autumn for waterfowl and warblers. Lots of herons. New bike path. Monitored by Master Naturalist volunteers.

I've worked beside this lake for 15 years and use it all the time for walks/jogs. It's now paved parking lots; fishing docks; landscaped, porta potties. Quite an improvement from the past.

There is a 1.6 mile one-way trail from here around the lake to Dodds Park. A great find and used exclusively every other day my me during my visit here
