Great walking area, lake is worth seeing. Walks can be short or a longer distance through to Hepburn Springs. Very picturesque.

The Lake could be viewed from our hotel and was just so picturesque. We were the during winter but looking out in the mornings it was just beautiful. Plenty of walkers around the lake and the geese are funny to watch.
