Chalco Hills is quite large and offers many trails and side spots to enjoy a picnic. The lake is near much of the trail systems so you get a nice view of the lake. Great place to spend a few hours enjoying the outdoors.

A great place for a jog, a bike ride or to wet a line. Large enough to be uncrowded and small enough to enjoy it all in a day. Good pan fishing, great trails and plenty of wildlife in the city.

We had our family pictures professionally done at Chalco Hills and really enjoyed the scenery and views. Lots of options for pictures and hiking. Diverse plant and tree life for those interested in exploring. Clean and well kept.

My only suggestion is to put up maps (signs) or offer them (brochures)... we got lost walking around the lake.
