Fish Lake Regional Park provides outdoor recreation opportunities in a wooded lakeside setting. Families can enjoy swimming, boating or ice fishing on Fish Lake. On land, they can picnic, hike, bike the trails and geocache. This park is especially scenic in the fall.
In the winter, the park maintains trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking. Dog owners rejoice - there's a fully-fenced dog off-leash area.
