Also at Wolf Lake, we are constructing the Water Garden Family Aquatic Center, due to open toward the end of the summer. During construction, you can still come out to windsurf or bring the family out for canoeing & kayaking (rentals available). Forsythe Park, located just to the north has a beautiful covered shelter available for rental or you can bring your family to take in a baseball game at the Little League Field.
