Another great place to hike in Athens. Many different trails so you won't get bored. There's a connecting trail to the larger park with a boardwalk.

I never appreciated fully what a fantastic place this was to spend a day, especially with kids. The beach is gorgeous, and rarely crowded. The disc golf weirdos are always kind and polite. Something is always growing. A three-legged deer teaches us a life lesson. There are tons of picnic tables, basketball hoops, and tennis courts. But you'll probably skip em in favor of the hiking trails or Lake Chapman. Always clean, very accessible, and a great way to introduce the kids to nature. And I totally forgot the dog park!

Love this park! Only $2 per person and so much to do. Never crowded. Dog park, can rent private fenced areas for $1/hour. Frisbee Golf for only $1 per person. Lake Chapman is clean (no motors) and so peaceful. Lots of hiking trails. Very cute rental pavillions with stone fireplaces! Basketball, beach, volleball, softball...horse trails! They have everything!!

It's wonderful to have a place where you can take the kids and dogs, where you can swim and jog or have picnics, fish, rent canoes, or just lay around in the grass! They have a great playground, my kids love it. We camp there in the summer and fall. It's a lovely place.

We enjoy fishing on the lake and have used the picnic shelters for get togethers. It is always clean. It has two playgrounds perfect for kids. Have seen the frisbee golf just have not taken the time to do it.
