I participated in a 10km walked hosted by a local club. There is a lot of area to wander around in and I saw several fisherman and boaters. You can't go wrong enjoying this park.

Bike and kayak rentals, walking trails, beaches, picnic tables, gorgeous sunsets and Sara's nearby for a cone or a hotdog! This is truly my favorite place to be!
