Me & my friends always meet at the lake when we all are home. Still a great place for walking, feeding the ducks or taking prom pictures. They could use a public bathroom​. Nevertheless we always just relaxing at the city lake.

Absolutely wonderful with all of the new sculptures. a Half mile path around the lake with many water fowl and a beautiful fountain. Many people have wedding photos taken at the gazebo which is on a small island in the lake. Very nice over all.
