Bryant Lake Regional Park
Bryant Lake Regional Park is nestled in 170 beautiful acres of rolling hills, woodlands, wetlands, and grasslands. Among the scenery, you might spot deer, waterfowl or songbirds that have made the park home. Enjoy activities such as disc golf on the 18-hole course and swimming in the sand-bottomed Bryant Lake.
Plan Your Visit
If you have 30 minutes to spend in Bryant Lake Regional Park, walk the paved trail loop that runs through the park. Stop at the top of the hill, near Hole 17 on the disc golf course, and take in spectacular colorful fall views of Bryant Lake.
