Has a fantastic path around the lake for walking, biking or rollerblading. Kept clean and mowed. Always friendly people out and about.

I just drove through it and there were at least 6 people out walking the trail in spite of 40 degree weather. It's a great place to relax.

small lake, but very clean. Nice trail around the lake and a trail leading up to it. You can also take the trail through town and connect up with another bike path.
