“Beautiful lake and park area”
Review of Children's Lake

Children's Lake
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is a beautiful spring fed lake in the quaint town of Boiling Springs, PA. The water is cool and crystal clear. You can see where the water is "bubbling" up to the surface from the underground. What a neat and serene place to visit.

If you live in Central PA and have not visited Boiling Springs, do it. The place is a step back in time. The town center has a glorious spring fed lake with water so clear that you can see the bottom. People are friendly, the Appalachian Trail runs through it and the area around the lake is cool on a warm day since the springs run out at 52 degrees.

Children's Lake in Boiling Springs is a beautiful, peaceful spot with ducks/geese/swan - lots of benches to sit and enjoy the view, especially some under beautiful big willow trees - nice walking path on one side of the lake.

I gotta say I am partial to Childrens Lake, as it is located in the town I live in. I got married in the gazebo back in 2001. Instead of throwing rice, etc. we tied individual bags of bread cubes, and everyone fed the ducks after the ceremony. Was a great time back then, and is still an enjoyable passtime now.

Plenty of benches to just sit and people/duck watch. Also a nice walking path. Fishing season is in, so it's neat to see the range of ages of all the different folks fishing.

Gotta love the lighted Christmas tree over the holidays, as well as all the luminaries. Very quaint.

Several other activities happen over the course of the year, at different holidays. And if nothing is going on, it's just a peaceful place to relax and take in the lake!

The water is fed year round by underground streams; it is crystal clear, and remains about 55-60 degrees all the time! Neat place.
