There's a pleasant surprise at the back of this 690-acre park. While others enjoy the ballfields, tennis courts, campground, miles of hiking trails and nature center, solace-seekers head down the hill from the expansive playground to the cozy 11-acre lake bordered by mature deciduous trees and a mile-long trail. A few benches and picnic tables dot the east side of the lake, while the west side is all wooded. Two waterside turtle and frog sculptures make enticing seating for children.Paddleboats, rented seasonally, are the only watercrafts allowed on the lake.
