The area sits behind the courtyard of the Columbia Association, Petite Louis, Clyde's and other restaurants. It's very scenic and peaceful and you can take a ride on the water in the little duck boats.

The lake has a busy side with restaurants, hotel & family oriented entertainment. There is a walkway around the lake and the far-side is quiet and provided a view of the busy downtown side. Plenty of parking.
