Lester Park has so much to offer and then some. Between flowing water falls, hiking trails, huge vast open land, and a park for children; it is the half day outdoor adventure seekers paradise. You will not be disappointed.

You are surrounded by nature's beauty. There is so much to do in Lester Park. I enjoy just going and watching the waterfalls and the river, and walking along the trails. I can't get enough!

We spent 3 1/2 hours hiking trails in Lester Park ... favorite area was along the Lester River with overlooks along the river. Many cross country ski trails as well...wide, easy to navigate areas (except for some that were extremely muddy and required walking along the edge!). The leaves were amazing ... beautiful yellows and reds/oranges framed against a bright... More

Walked along the river with bubbling brooks and enjoyed the nature. There are places you can go down and put your feet in the water and just enjoy being among the rocks.

The Zenith City has so much for visitors to see and do, it's hard to take it all in. But for those who like an off the beaten path adventure, try this east end neighborhood park. It does have the usual playground for the kids and picnic shelter, but it also features two gorgeous northshore streams that cascade along both... More

The Lester River is beautiful. Nice swimming hole the local kids were enjoying. We were looking forward to the 7 bridges road but, it was closed for construction. That was disappointing

People come here for different reasons. For family gatherings, picnics, hiking, skiing, and swimming and jumping into the waterholes formed by the Lester River's current. Hiking and skiing trails meander throughout the park and offer numerous degrees of difficulty (see trail maps posted all around). Beautiful deciduous and conifer trees everywhere. Several waterfalls. We went here after finding Chester Park... More

Not a great golfer, but enjoy swinging the club, Lester Park has a forgiving course and some beautiful vistas. Tried out a new driver and two new woods and was inspired to greater heights. Lester Park also has a beautiful spot for weddings. It has a River for fishing. In the winter it has cross country ski trails and sliding... More
