Comments: Not entirely sure what I think of this park just yet. All the trails are on the north side of the lake, as the south side is occupied by a golf course. This park apparently connects with the Brushy Creek Regional Trail, but I couldn't really tell exactly where that connection was. There are a lot of different side trails and connecting trails on the western side of the park, which don't seem to be used as much. At one point there I smelled the distinct aroma of rotting flesh and discovered a deer carcass on the side of the trail, so I'm not sure how good the maintenance normally is either. It looked like there was a side trail heading under the Parmer Lane overpass, which I don't believe is part of the park proper. At any rate, I'll likely come back here at least once to explore a bit more. It's also very close to the Williamson County Regional Park.
