This is a great place to walk cool off & see lots of birds. Ice cream overlooking the lake & fish & turtles to see too. I first went by myself & loved it so much I took friends there too !

This park is a gem of a place! It has facilities for all ages, but the best attraction is nature itself. It's a great place to see many different bird species and although often busy at weekends and holidays, you can always find a quiet spot just o sit and enjoy some 'natural beauty'

We not only walk Lakes Park daily for exercise, but take the kids there to play in their water features and have also had several of their birthday parties there with Family and Friends...great place to be on any day!

My husband likes to walk, hike, canoe, and bike. This place offers all of this (and more). We walked on our last visit on trails wide enough for both walkers and the 4-person bikes, stopped to watch the pedal boats, all while taking in the wildlife, fish, and gardens. Topped it off with terrific ice cream too! All for a small fee to park. We'll go back.

This park is huge and very well maintained. Rent single, double or quadruple bikes, rent boats, explore the wildlife, host a party at one of the pavilions or just grill with your family. This park has something for everyone. Wonderful playgrounds for kids, train ride, walking and biking paths, and even a vegetable garden! (Only for looks!)
Overall it's a wonderful place to spend the whole day and yes, you can even grab a snack there.
