A Walk in the Park

March 06, 2017

Located just a few miles from our hotel, the Lafayette Recreation Area is a perfect year-round locale for an array of outdoor activities. In addition to the paved Lakeside Nature Trail (2.7 miles) and the unpaved Rim Trail (4.7 miles), there are over 900 acres of open greenery where you can hike, appreciate the wildlife, and take beautiful photographs. Picnic tables are open to the public, and many of the picnic sites feature barbecue grills for your convenience. You can also reserve outdoor eating spaces for larger parties. Trout fishing is popular in all seasons, and catfish are plentiful during the summer. You can rent row boats, pedal boats, and kayaks for the day, or you can bring your own boat. On the east lawn, you’ll find a children’s playground. And your four-legged friends are more than welcome to join you on all adventures here as well, though leashes are required.
