Open Memorial Day through Labor Day, the beach is a popular location to take a dip and soak up some summer sun. The lake reaches 42 feet at maximum depth and was formerly a gravel pit until becoming reclaimed by the city park and recreation department in 1981 and transformed. There is no admission and no lifeguards on duty at the beach. Additional features at the park include restrooms, play area, a handicapped accessible fishing pier, and carry-in boat access.
