We love athis spot for picnics from Spring until Fall. ALso, on Wednesdays in July there is music. It is fun to watch the boats and just enjoy looking at the water.

Great place to relax and "chill" near the lake. Currently, one of the few places in Wayzata where you can dock a boat for a bit. Great live music in July on Wednesdays!

We were here with a (family) wedding party. The party was taking photos with Lake Minnetonka in the background while we hung out and walked the grounds. Very pretty, very scenic. Well-maintained.
