My family have been going to French Park for over twenty years. The play area is showing it's age but as for nature, it nice to walk in the park. Beware hide your valuable as there seems to be a lot of auto break ins.

French Park and Medicine Lake(the lake that the park borders on) are treasures. I have lived in the area for 25 years. French Park is great for picnicking, biking, swimming, exercise walking, children to play, and scenery. It rarely gets too crowded. No bike rentals are available but a bike ride around the lake(8 miles) is among the more beautiful "water feature" rides in the country...all via path. The other nice park on Medicine Lake is located on the west shore...much smaller but also great for biking, walking, scenery...swimming at the smaller park is so-so due to a muddy bottom. Fishing in Medicine Lake is considered good...sunfish, bass, northern.

Very nice park with good playground and beach and walking trails
But playground is always crowded so are the trails.
The walking rules on the trails are limiting.
But it is close to everything and if you would like a short walk very nice park.
Since there are only 2 trails which are paved (and these are the only trails where dogs are allowed), do not go there with the dog, it is nowhere to go.
Also, there is biking trail which passes through the park, is is very hilly.

An extensive playground for kids, nature walks, swimming beach, and inexpensive boat (kayak, canoe, paddleboard) rentals. Great place to visit for a few hours on a nice day.

Right down the road from a busy shopping area and surrounded by the suburbs is this great park. Lots of room for picnics. Also has a spacious beach area and it's kind of fun to ride the shuttle there. Super playground!
