  • Fabulous spot to walk either around the lake or try a more challenging trail. No motor boats are allowed so it is superb for kayaking. Truly heaven on earth. 
  • This is a nice park that is not very crowded. picnicking areas, walking trail, and fishing. All very close. 
  • Took the trail through the forest around the scenic lake. It's a great way to breathe some fresh air right in town.

  • Lake Padden is ringed with a beautiful gravel trail, perfect for walking, training, and smooth enough for jogging strollers. The park accommodates a wide range of activities, hosting: a ball field, basketball court, swimming area, boat launch, dog park, golf course, horse trails, connections to mountain bike trails, off leash dog trails, covered picnic area, and multiple docks.
  • Lake Padden is a great family-friendly walk, run, or bike ride. You can also start your water adventure from the boat launch.
  • Beautiful park and popular spot in town. It's a big park with a 2 mile path that circles the lake. There are tables and BBQs scattered around the lake, plenty of parking, playground, basketball court etc. There's plenty of room for everyone and overall quite peaceful. No power boats, mostly canoes, kayaks, paddle boards etc. It's a Bham staple to get away in town.
  • Nice place to walk, ride a bike or a horse, dog off leash trail area, incredible quiet forested trails. Take care if you go to leave it as you found it.
  • My happy place! Great for pretty much any outdoor activity!
