  • When we were there, the air was still and you could watch the trout swimming and eating. The water is quite clear so they were easy to spot. THE walk along the shore is fairly easy. 
  • Great place to have the kids play and hike around.They have picnic shelter you can rent to have gatherings. 
  • Enjoy a little peace and quiet while having a picnic and enjoying the view of this very nice public park.

  • It is very relaxing. I enjoy the sounds of the water running in the streams. The views are peaceful. One of my favorite places to walk.
  • Beautiful any time of the year...make sure you walk out to Gazebo Island.
  • A nice place to hammock or go for a stroll. The lake sometimes smells in warm weather, but tis still nice
  • It's great for hanging out with friends and having a barbecue, playing games. Some of the paths are in need of repair. So watch your step. Otherwise, a great place to chill.
  • Quiet, nice walking paths. Facilites are clean and well maintained, great pavilions for picnics or family gatherings.
