UPDATE as of 07-01-2020

The Lake is currently open for biking, running, walking, fishing, exercising and playing in the three remodeled playground areas.  Privately owned boats with a lake sticker are allowed. There are no rentals available.
This man-made lake (the earth removed was transported to a landfill to form Nickol Knoll Golf Club) was created to ease flooding problems. The 1.84 mile walking path (measured from the building) is used year-round. Whether you venture into the natural area and cross two short bridges or bypass this and stay on the outer path,  The 50-acre detention lake allows boating and fishing but no swimming. Extensive renovations to the path, playgrounds, outdoor exercise area, fishing and boat piers were completed in 2018.
