On our way home from the Florida Caverns, we took a short cut the last few miles and went right past this little park. It is actually a fresh water lake located on one side of a dam while the West Bay with brackish water (part salty, part fresh) is located on the other side. Pretty neat.
There is a nice small play structure, a swimming beach, and a boat ramp with dock as well as lots of picnic tables with covers.
While the kids were playing, Steve worked on his exercise routine.
Cameron did a little tree climbing and sky watching. The clouds were beginning to roll in.
Taking a break from swimming.
Back to the swimming. There are a couple of rafts out on the water but no diving as the water is not very deep. The water was crystal clear and the kids were surprised to find out that it was not salty as you can actually see our neighborhood park beach in the distance from the dam.
We waited out one rain storm sitting under a covered pavilion as it looked like it would move through quickly; however, when the next one popped up, we decided to head out. Still, it was another great day in the water.
