This is a great Newcastle neighborhood park that is well used. There is a small Lake at the park, not really suitable for swimming but there are several docks for fishing. The park has some nice walking paths and a really nice play ground for young kids. It is a popular spot for walking your dog but leash laws are enforced. There are several covered larger picnic areas which need to be reserved well in advance as they are used heavily. Enjoy your visit to Lake Boren Park.
