Ariel-Foundation Park has three beautiful large lakes that were once gravel quarries.
Seven pavilions situated around the lakes make this the perfect spot to gather for a picnic. The Park National Bank Pavilion and Patio and other pavilions are available for reservation. Visitors also enjoy the paved pathways, benches, and public restrooms in The Lakes area. Other attractions include an historic bowstring truss bridge and a narrow isthmus leading to Mavis Island. This island was dedicated to Mayor Richard K. Mavis, celebrating and honoring his vision and leadership in the development of Ariel-Foundation Park. Boating and fishing, with restrictions, are allowed. Please read Park Rules.

We like to kayak in the mornings when the water is like glass.
