This park has won three awards for its natural design and sensitivity to nature. You can walk, run or bike the 2.6-mile paved pathway that meanders around the lake. Visitors are welcome to rent a boat, cast for fish, enjoy the colorful natural wildflower areas, watch for a diversity of birds, waterfowl, and wildlife, play a sport, or in our case have a great picnic. Directions and additional info is on the county web site.
