Nestled into the Matthews area is Squirrel Lake Park. Simply a great place for preschool and lower elementary students. The great outdoors in their “neck of the woods”.

This place has so much to offer. They have an extensive playground for kids, clean bathrooms, a lake to fish in, nature trails complete with informative signs, and plenty of parking. This is a great place for the whole family.

Nice little park for the family. Small playground. Paved walk to the pond. You can fish and there are frisbee golf goals but last I was there it was pretty overgrown

The paths are paved which is plus to the lake park. The grounds around it are maintained but the water seemed a bit mucky. Overall was an ok experience.
