This is the park I have visited most over the years. It has a nice paved walking track that runs around the lake, 2 beaches, water attractions, various picnic areas, a petting zoo, and various nature trails. There are also some artifacts of the old town of Kensington scattered about the park. The Island Queen boat ride is still operating as of 2022 but operates seasonally.
