You can also drive there, park near the boat house, saunter over to the expansive gardens, with luxuriant groves of broadleaf trees and drifts of agapanthus, a bonsai garden, fountains, and wide open picnic spaces.
Great walking paths, boat rentals for sailing and paddle boating, "Fairyland" kiddie amusement park and lots of nearby restaurants on both the Grand Av side and Lakeshore sides of the Lake.
