“Nice place to take the dog for a walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2012

The lake is down right now, but the dog always enjoys going through the woods. I have launched my little boat here and it isn't a bad lake to run up and down.

“Nice park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

Smaller park with some boating and fishing - play area for kids and some nature trails. Just down the street (must use car) there's an interesting grist mill.
