This park is great for bike trails. I biked 20 miles around the trails and parks. The trails are fairly easy. Nice and peaceful park/lake in the city.

I used the park primarily to walk or run but great for bikes and you can paddleboard as well. It’s beautiful and the area is large.

This is a very big lake with not a lot of development around it. You can run or use a bike to go around but it still misses some cafes or social areas.

I've never seen fishing equipment for rent out there and didn't really have much luck the one time I took my kids fishing there but that was probably user error. Other people fish out there and have had success.
