A wide gravel path takes you around two small lakes surrounded by willows and some cattails, with a second path continuing N through a grassy meadow and ash woods. The ponds host waterfowl year round; in spring warblers abound in the willows. The meadow hosts sparrows, and the woods are good for thrushes, wrens and vireos. Osprey often dive into the small ponds to take stocked trout. Restrooms are located across the lake from the parking area.
