Bridgeview Park: as a Kayaking point. This is on the downstream side of Springfield Lake (towards Chatham), off the Palm Road / Chatham exit.  Launch kayaks at this point, and paddled down stream (past Sugar Creek).  This is calm water, and a wonderful nature-experience with loads of Herons, ducks, geese, turtles and song birds.  Very quiet, peaceful and serene: as if civilization was 100 miles away.
