Rain or shine finds the health-conscious walking, jogging and biking the 3.5 miles of trails that wind under landscaped bridges past many species of trees and flowers in bloom, through rhododendron gardens and past the lake's two spectacular fountains. A more leisurely stroll will allow you to learn about the planets or trees by way of the Planetary Walk or the Frank Willis Arboretum, or enjoy the captivating Japanese Gardens, splendid in any season. Kayaking, fishing, canoeing and picnicking bring out families for a day of fun. Children or those young at heart can enjoy two unique playgrounds, while everyone loves relaxing to Concerts at the Lake on summer evenings and taking in the Go-4th event celebrating the Fourth of July holiday. During the week folks use the park to relax during lunchtime, bringing a book or just visiting and watching the activity of children feeding birds, squirrels, and chipmunks. There truly is something for everyone at the lake, so add this gem to your list of things to do in Longview, and come down for a visit. You will see why we call Lake Sacajawea the city's crown jewel…it always sparkles with activity!
