Lake Wilderness Park

At 117 acres, Lake Wilderness Park is a large regional park with lots of prime shoreline, preserved forestland, and meandering pathways. Running through the middle of the park is Jenkins Creek, a tributary for Big Soos Creek, which empties into the Green River. The park includes three wetlands, and a variety of birds and animals make their home here, including deer, beaver, raccoon, hawks, wrens, and ruffed grouse. It's also home to the Lake Wilderness Park Arboretum 40-acre shrubbery display.
