Large park great for jogging, biking, blading or just a stroll. Park offers rental bikes, gazebos with grills, and pig roast, as well as waterpark for kids and holiday train rides. Highly recommend to people that need to relax during the week.

Lots of nice walking trails around the lake. Basically a recreational area for family outings with picnic areas and boat and bike rentals. They also have a small botanical garden which offers a pleasant walk.

I don't believe you can have alcohol at the park because it is a county park. So sorry.
