  • $1.50 for 2 hrs of parking. My wife and I did the lake walk took us about 1.5 hours to complete the loop.
  • Beautiful park. Parking is $7 for all day. Short term parking fills up too quickly.
  • This is a very beautiful local place for picnics and parties, but a little bit too windy, so be prepared to be dressed accordingly. There is a playground for the kids and a few barbecue zones just in front of it. Also, the boats are available for rent (see a photo with the prices).
  • Such a lovely place, visited for the 1st time yesterday and really enjoyed it, great place to walk or run or paddle in the water - I am told it can be very crowded during peak hrs so be aware of that
  • Beautiful 2.75 mail walk around the reservoir that is paved. You can always hike the ridge trail but it's very tiring as it's constant up & down hills.
