The scenic lake with affordable restaurants on shore is also great for jogging and especially for bicycling and skateboarding. Sailing and windsurfing might be also available, probably for a fee.

We stumbled across this beautiful lake while riding around getting famililar with the area. What a beautiful find. The light house is wonderful and some yummy looking places to eat right on the lake. Who doesn't love a water view!! We ate a Louis and loved it!

Lake Hefner has a 9.3 mile walking trail around it. But if you don't want to walk it is also a great place to ride bikes or just picknic. There is a park for kids to play in! And a lighthouse you can go up in!
