Found this lovely little lake while visiting Cranbrook. It is a quiet non-motorized body of water that offered shade and sandy beach. Perfect place to park our lawn chairs, read and watch families enjoy themselves in a safe environment. Bring your kayak or paddle board!...More

I can ride my bike here for a quick dip in the lake or else take my kayak and scoot around for an hour in the afternoon before my shift starts. It's full of families on the weekends, and unexpectedly NOT deserted during the week....More
