Lake Chautauqua Park
2312 Landmark Dr.,

The many facets of the Park on 54 acre Lake Chautauqua. It is a good place for a hike, walk or bicycle ride through the flatwoods on trails that are part paved, part sandy but overall flat and easy. You might like to go out on the pier to see what birdlife has taken up residence that day. A trek along the trail in the Equestrian section should be on your list as well
