The trail around the lake offers various views of the area from the mountains to the south and the Discovery Hills development to the north. Though most of the new plantings are not native, the vegetation is maturing and the walk around
the lake is very pleasant. There are many recreational opportunities in this area. Children will enjoy fishing or feeding the ducks from a dock that extends into the lake, and a playground in the adjacent park has a small fountain area for children to splash in. The trails are populated with walkers out for an evening stroll, parents pushing baby strollers, teens rollerblading, high school runners practicing, people walking dogs, etc. is is a very enjoyable area.
