Spring Lake is such a beautiful park whether you like hiking, biking, kayaking, picnicking or just walking in natural beauty. It is a dog friendly park and great place to bring the kids. I feel so fortunate to live just minutes away from this beauty!

How wonderful to have this park in our very own "backyard"! A perfect place for a casual stroll around the lake enjoying nature. Great family activities or just to have some down time.

This park is not to be missed if you want to walk, bike, hike solo, with kids or friends for a conversation. A great place to sit and soak in the spender.

A great place for a walk. There are a lot of different trails so if there are many people in the park you can always find a peaceful trail if you want to be solo. The lake itself gets very crowded on the weekends. You...More
