The town has a paved walkway along the lake that borders the community. Lots of flowers, and grass, and friendly people willing to share the time of day or town history. Made me want to move there.

The waterfront walkway is just beautiful! It's very peaceful and not too busy early on the weekend mornings. The gardens are well tended and everything was very clean. Great place to take in the lake views and enjoy a stroll

It was rainy while we were there but this little town still had lots of charm. The promenade was well kept and provided a lovely walk.

A great place to stretch your legs or spend the day. Full beach and across the parking lot is a full park. The city should be incredibly proud of the clean facilities and manicured lawns. They even have some railway cars. We stopped for a...More
