The exercise trail with the workout and playground equipment along the route is such a good idea. It is exercising with a view.

We had a great time ice fishing and fishing here. We were sad about the algae problems this summer. It's a great location and love the fishing docks

It's the hidden treasures that are the best. Has a walking/bike path. Swimming area. Different themed play areas that are not only fun but educational with exercise equipment. Love this place

The area needs some investment to make it great but there are nice trees and lots of space for kids to run around.

Beautiful area very well kept up very family-friendly! Spent a lot of time there when I was dating my husband in 1993 and it's just as nice today as it was then
