Lots of trails, lots of play equipment, lots of eating areas, many areas for large groups and beautiful water and landscape. We have lived near French Regional Park area since before it was a Park and feel so Blessed to have it so close!

This park is great for families as it has a beautiful park and ice cream. I would come here again since it is so great for lake fun and playing around. They have nice trails and great restrooms too.
