Community center under construction, but other side of park is open. Locals fish off the bridges, and enjoy the water birds. Brand new public facilities. Community activities. Also site for annual Bass Tournament. Very nice playground area for children up to age 11.

Venetian Gardens is a beautiful park right by the lake. There is an abundance of wild-life, including alligators and many different types of birds. A pleasant walk, including the Martin Luther King Jr memorial gardens.
