Paddle boating and bikes are available. You can fish or just walk the path around the lake. Saturdays feature the farmer's market. A nice touch in South Texas.

We saw many different kinds of ducks. Even one with a "cotton ball" on its head. Nice little playground for kids too. And pedal boat rentals at certain times/days.
