Town Lake is a 3-acre lake with ½ mile paved running and bicycling trail circumnavigating it, which connects with the 2nd Street Hike & Bike Trail.

Tackle, bait, and refreshments are available for purchase during the seasonal, staffed operating hours. A nearby pavilion is available for groups by reservation only, and two picnic table shelters, which include a barbecue grill, are first-come, first serve. Two playgrounds are also present in the park. The park is open to the public from 6 am – 11 pm daily.
