Spring Lake is a must visit. The trails are wide enough to take your dog, kids, and bicycles. Are you into kayaking, or fishing? You can have a full day of family fun. more »
There are lots of paths with beautiful views. It was a cold morning which made walking so enjoyable. People were jogging, walking their dogs and children in strollers. They have benches to sit and families laid blankets in some of the grassy areas for picnics. A man was fishing in the lake and another was in a boat. There were signs for horseback riding but not sure if it is available now. Just a lovely place to go and spend the day.
Part of an amazing three park system. Loved by many and a well protected/cared for asset of the community. Great place for a stroll, camping or having a picnic.
