3 Reasons my Family Loves Echo Lake Park

 

  • Echo Lake Park is host to many county run events, namely a summer concert series and the fall Pumpkin Sail, and winter sledding.  It’s a hub for the Union County area -people as well as dogs!  It includes a large county maintained dog park with separate space for large or small dogs (children under 8 not allowed inside).

 

  • The lake provides a gorgeous background for a brisk walk on the paved path that runs along the water. There are benches along the way to take a break, and a snack stand at the pedal boat dock.  Tired of walking? Rent a boat for $10/hour.

 

  • There’s of course a playground structure for little ones to explore but a little further down the park you’ll find huge hills – which my children were happy to roll down. But be sure to venture to the top of the hill to pay tribute at the Union County September 11 Memorial.
