    If you take photography at TCC Carlos hates duck pictures. He says they're overdone and you can be more creative.

    Please don't cruise here. The speed limit around the lake is 25, not 5.

    The park has picnic shelters, a site for community activities and a walking trail that encircles the lake. It's bordered by quaint shops and cafes. Visitors can enjoy a 0.6mi walk around the lake.

    Lake Ella is a great place to relax or take a walk. There is almost always something going on - musicians playing by the water, farmer's market on Wednesdays, with great coffee shop along the sidewalk

    Don't feed the ducks. The signs say don't feed the ducks. They never migrate away and are ruining the local eco-system. There are no longer fish because of all the duck shit.
