Take a stroll around the lake or on a shaded path at one of our many community parks. Leave the concrete jungle behind and get moving as these parks feature walking paths surrounded by nature. Bring some bread and feed the ducks by the lake or grab the family and plan a picnic. We also have a few smaller neighborhood parks that are great for play dates and picnics.
