There is an unpaved nature trail that is around 1/2 mile long. Lots of wildlife for a small, busy park.

Good lake for being in the middle of Apex. Very busy however but well maintained with asphalt walking surface. There is currently construction nearby so very noisy at points. The dock is very nice and relatively new.

The trail is nice, except it can get very busy and noisy. I have avoided because of obnoxious people not wanting to enjoy nature, talking loudly on their phone. We have seen some interesting wildlife here, especially snakes.
