An island has been added in the back of the lake. A walking trail has been constructed around the lake, which includes a 50 ft bridge to complete the trail. Approximately 15 miles of trails have been constructed in the park with plans to expand. When completed this Park will be an icon for this type of recreation facility and will provide additional revenue for Chilton County and the surrounding merchants.
