Always a great place to visit - bike, run, lake stuff (no swimming) or just enjoy the park! Nice variety of picnic spots, playgrounds, soccer fields, and good boat access. Many great photography...

Very nice place to take the kids to play at play ground or walk around the lake. When riding or using anything with wheels I would recommend avoiding the bridge and island. There is a bunch of fishing line on the island. They should be more responsible with their fishing line. This was last year so hopefully it is cleaned up and better.
There is something for everyone here and you might need to come back over and over to find it all...Dom's Park playground and the nature playground are awesome for my kids. I love walking around the extensive path around the lake. Ice fishing during the winter. Beautiful scenery and nature. I love this place!
