This is a lovely manicured park and lake that has plenty of parking.. There is a path surrounding the lake for walkers, joggers and bikers. You have fishing for gar, bass and catfish as well as sunnies and occasionally trout.

I drop my mom at the McKinney Senior Center and this park is very close. It's just a little break away from the city for me. It's not huge, but it has a great paved walking path.
