What a great place to learn to wind surf. Shallow lake offers oppurtunites for many recreation activities and bird watching.

I thought this place was a welcomed stop for a place to spend the after noon or a day. The grounds were clean and well kept, there were table and benches and lots of green grass to sit on and admire the lake.

Vancouver Lake park is a nice park and a good attempt at saving a dieing lake. I happen to live on lake front propety and I have a wonderful vew. If you come to Vancouver Lake I recomend you come in the fall becuase the lake is often covered with a alge bloom in summer and is flooding in fall. It is a great place to watch a sun rise and the other side is a great place to watch a sun set. I recomend that you dont go swimming in it becuase youll smell for weeks, and because there are sumerged objects to get caught on.

This now deing lake is a backwater and past chanel of the Wilamet river before the columbia changed its chanel. In the 1980's the comunity came together in an atempt to cleanup the Lake mostly with Federal funds.
This effort was abandoned and the water quality has steadely spiralled downward making this one of the top most poluted lakes in Washington for each of the last 14 years.
