Great daytime getaway for the kids! Shoreline fishing is permitted. Picnic tables and barbecue area. Many portable toilets also available. Excellent views of the lake. Great for apartment dwellers with no yard! Tons of free parking.

The lake has been a focal point for generations, whether you explore it by small boat or just go for a picnic with the family. A good place to unwind in the early morning at sunrise or late evening at sunset.
