Does this really qualify as a lake, more like a murky pond. Maybe it's just because it hadn't rained in a while, but I'd hardly bill this as an "attraction." No big deal.

Very calm and serene spot in Rehoboth Beach while very close to the boardwalk. They also have picnic tables.

Nice what to fish off of = very much quiet and off the beaten track (boardwalk). Fishing wharf is great.

Very nice respite from the hustle and bustle of mainstreet Rehoboth. A small but lovely lake (more like a large pond) within easy walking distance from most areas of town and an easy walking path around it. Very easy to segue within a 1/2 block...More
