Hefner Lake is a great place to go for a ride. It is a little over ten miles around the lake and relatively flat. It is a great spot to take kiddos. People can also take boats out too.

Nice place to walk or sit. Great sunsets and a few good places to eat while there. If you're a biker or a walker/jogger, this is the place for you.

Beautiful park for walking, bicycling or just sitting on a bench. There was a concert on the beach near the restaurant but we opted for a quiet seat to watch a lovely sunset.

Small lake with beautiful views, walking trails all the way around and a biking lane all the way around too! It seems like there is always something happening here, and if not, just watch kite-flying, para sailing, etc.

Got to the lake just before sunset and had time to walk out to the lighthouse. What a beautiful sight to watch the sailboats and the sunset.

Many places . Take Hefner exit off Hefner Pkwy. Park on far west end of parking lot, near water, by wind sock. Plenty of places along this area.
