    Think of this as the JKO Reservoir of the north. It's roughly 1 mile of mostly asphalt or gravel around the meer, making it a great running route. Plus there are plenty of hilly detours if you choose.

    Fishing here is for practice only, meaning that you have to return the fish to the lake except for one species that is extremely invasive. Be sure to read the signs for more info and pics of the fish.

    Go Fish! Head to the nearby Dana Discovery Center, which loans out free poles, along with bait and helpful fishing tips. Angle for largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill sunfish, chain pickerel, and carp. Read more

    It's a beautiful part of the park, but unfortunately under lots of construction right now. ):

    If you love dogs or have a dog this is the place to be. It's a pleasant morning run for me. Starts to get a little busy about 7:45 during the week.

    A hidden gem at the northeast end of Central Park, and among the most beautiful, elegant and serene offerings from the world's greatest natural resource.

    You won't find a swarm of map carriers like downtown, in this park. Come for solitude and peace. The occasional festival makes it's presence in summer months. Perfect for sky gazing and blade blazing.

    I know the sign says, "Do not feed animals" but feed the ducks & tiny birds anyway! Avoid pigeons at all costs!

    Don't miss the annual Pumpkin Sail, when a flotilla of jack o’ lanterns are launched at sundown. BYOP if you want to launch your own creation into the fray.

    During the summer this is the place to be for great world music, between sunning, fine picnic food and just a great experience (not a bad place to people watch too).
