Didn't know this was there, until we stumbled across it on a bike ride! Beautiful little lake in the middle of town!

It's a beautiful walk, but with all the amazing other bodies of water around, I might not recommend it unless it's nearby. There's likely another great place to walk closer to where you are in the area.

We stopped to take pictures at Silver Lake. It was drizzling so we did not stay long. The lake is very pretty and a nice place to take a walk if you like to exercise every day.

I've never seen anyone swimming there; I'm inclined to think it's not allowed. I believe I have seen people boating, but my impression is that all the docks belong to people whose property abuts the lake. So unless the place... More
