Fish Lake Regional Park
Fish Lake Regional Park offers outdoor recreation in a wooded, lakeside setting. Water enthusiasts enjoy swimming, boating or ice fishing on Fish Lake. You’ll also find picnic areas and a rental pavilion. This park is especially scenic in the fall, when blazing maples reflect on the lake, creating a picturesque setting for your outdoor activities.
Fish Lake offers turf trails for snowshoeing and hiking in winter. Dog owners enjoy year-round exercise with paved trails and a fully-fenced dog off-leash area.
