  • The park is gorgeous with a nice pavilion for family gatherings, well maintained and clean waters. Gorgeous views.  more »
  • We birded our way around the lake. It's just less than a mile but paved most of the way as it wends though willows and across bridges. Fishing, swimming for kids, picnic tables, a large lawn with nice...  more »

  • I've enjoyed this place all my life. There's an excellent trail for walking or jogging. The fishing isn't what it used to be, due to increased pressure, but it's still a fun place to teach your children to fish. Please be careful! In the winter, ice thickness is inconsistent in the large pond due to the seven natural springs feeding it. The beach drops off abruptly and people have drowned here both summer and winter. I am a little frustrated though, by careless dog owners. Despite the free bags, there is a lot of dog waste near the trail. Park rules also require leashes at all times, but both days I went this weekend, unleashed dogs ran up on my leashed dog. Today the owner was nowhere in sight and the little red heeler was aggressive towards my mutt. But if they'd fought and my dog won, my dog could be labeled as vicious. The park doesn't allow dogs between April 15 and October 15 already, due to irresponsible owners ignoring the rules.
  • Great place to take the family out for the day and even get some fishing in. Located right in the heart of Helena, it is not out of the way at all and certainly worth a trip even just to hang out for lunch. The view is really nice especially for being right in town that you would never even know.
