  • Freeman lake is a wonderful stop in Elizabethtown to unwind or exercise. Central and historic, the lake can be traversed around the complete perimeter. 
  • We visited to see the Christmas lights, and what a spectacular experience. The line into the park was moving at a slow but steady pace. Slow enough to enjoy the lights and see all the displays. We goo...  more »
  • Every December for the past 7 years my family and I drive about an hour to come to see the park to see the Christmas lights. It's a great place to see a great display of lights from the safety and war...  more »
  • Nice place! I wish the trail around the lake was marked better. It seems to fall apart on one side of the lake. I have run several 5K races there. It has a great dog park.
  • I've been coming here since childhood. Great place for your lunch break or spend the day. The city takes great care of the place and adds new attractions to the park every year.
  • Nice place to step out of the city. There are historic buildings, tennis courts, pavilions, a boat ramp, a canoe ramp, a fishing dock, disc golf course, and plenty of space to just walk around. There are various quality trails all the way around the lake and one trail extends over to the new nature park on the other side of Ring Road through a tunnel. The lake itself leaves a bit to desire as there are no continuous streams supplying it and as you walk all the way around it, it looks like a wasting retention pond. The large amount of Canadian geese in the area also provides an unpleasant smell to the area. Regardless, still a close place to step out and enjoy a little bit of nature.
  • Absolutely love this place! This is one of the first places I took my kiddos to, after moving to Kentucky. The Christmas light show is pretty neat too. Check it out!!
  • Great place to take in natures beauty! Wonderful for kids and adults alike. Fishing, play grounds, hiking trails, kids can see and feed the ducks, clean, and restrooms. Pet friendly place too!
