You would hardly know that this place is here, right in the heart of the city. It is at the NW corner of Gladiolus & US41, with the access off of Gladiolus. There is no entry fee but it is $1/hr or $5/day to park your car. As the name suggests, there is a large lake in the middle of... More

Lots to do here, parks, water pads boat and bike rentals, special events, a small train ride, ice cream, wildlife, trails... there is a parking fee, if you do not have a sticker. Fun place to spend the day with the children or just walking or running the trails. Castle minigolf is right next-door.

We enjoy exploring natural sites of beauty within our local area and we tried Lakes Park this trip. We were pleasantly surprised at the many lakes teeming with a large variety of birds and animals, a beach, a playground, and many trails for walking or biking on. What made the park exceptional were the paddle boats and kayaks that were... More

My understanding is that this park used to be some type of quarry that was filled-in with water and now provides a wonderful haven for birds, fish, butterflies and yes, humans!! You can walk the trails, fish, go on little boats, go bicycling or get wet under water games. Bring a pic-nic there are plenty of tables. There is also... More

This is a very clean park with lots to see. You pay to park $1/hour or $5 for the day (there are machines that take the fee and give a receipt). First we rented a surrey (a small cart with bicycle pedals for all). They provide a map and you can pedal around to your leisure. We rented the 6-person... More

Just had a great afternoons fun with our two grandchildren. Everything is well planned for all age groups. Our two loved going on the 1 1/2 mile rail ride, the play area, the water play area, the walk around the lake and the tasty milk shakes at the concessional stand. There are areas for cook outs and for groups to... More

The kids loved it, and we loved the fact they could run around without us beeing worried. They are 4 and 7 years old.... More

My son and his girlfriend (College students) walked through the park and loved it. He told me that if I ever look for something to do on my own, sometime, that this would be great. We are locals, so I know he is used to the weather and scenery, and still really enjoyed it.
