Lake Park has one of the BEST views there is. I have never seen so many people taking Wedding pictures in my life. If you want a FANTASTIC location for pictures this is it.

The Lake Park is a pretty little park near the beach. There are a lot of picnic lots and sporting oppurtunities.

Neat drive up to the north side along the lake to see this park. Walking trails and overlooks the lake. Also the lighthouse fun to see/tour when open.

Our beautiful lake is so special. There are very few fresh water lakes in the world and this one is taken care of for the enjoyment of all the citizens. Along the Lake Park you will find a world class Art Museum. Don't miss it.

Fun place to stop and walk around and take in the sights. So pretty and so much going on in the area during the summer. Great for my kiddos to run around and burn off energy

Tell your friends you have been to Lake Park. Tell me? I got a Charmeleon today! If you say Snorlax or Dragonite, your friend will be jealous. Lake Park is the best spot to play Pokemon Go! And there is also a great playground, too.

We went there for Pokemon Go, but the park is beautiful. There is a lot of controversy surrounding the use of the park for Pokemon Go, aside from that the park is huge and has some great views.

Really nice clean well maintained park. Check out the lighthouse, really picturesque. I didn't eat there but did look in on the restaurant which looks really nice. Also checked out the folks playing Lawn Bowling.
