  • 1. morning solitude!

    by: pammy57

    I truly love this place. My golden retriever and I walk the trails here alone and with friends. It takes about 40 min. to do the whole loop which is a perfect amount of time for a walk! There are many other trails which shoot off the main trail. I also kayak at this lake! This truly is a hidden gem!

    Pros

    wonderful, peaceful trail

    Cons

    pet owners that don't clean up!

  • 2. Is it okay for a horse?

    by: OnCloudNine44

    I was thinking about going here with my horse is it a nice place for a pony or are there too many dogs? Also, is the lake rocky or sandy?

    Pros

    trails

    Cons

    dogs maybe?

  • 3. horrible

    by: gegx3

    GET THE FISHERMEN OUT of where the dogs are supposed to swim.

    Pros

    the walking trail around the lake is ok I guess

    Cons

    the idiot fisherman are always fishing where the dogs are supposed to swim so it's pointless to go unless your planing on only walking.

  • 9. i walk here daily

    by: helens

    I live close by this park so I walk there with my dog almost daily. It is a lovely place to take a walk in all 4 seasons. There's a lot of wildlife to see there, and there are usually quite a few dog walkers there so my dog gets to socialize. She loves to swim in the lake. However, the Peters Township Police do not allow it. So, make sure you hide your dog if it's wet and the police come by!

    Pros

    lovely scenery

    Cons

    police may fine you if your dog is wet. Honestly!

  • 11. Our Favorite Place

    by: lksix

    Wow, I'm happy that Peter's Lake is on here! This is our absolute favorite place to walk in the summers. I am so lucky we have this wonderful hidden treasure right near our house. I must say however, I was very upset when they cut down that beautiful old tree that the kids used to swing off of. Those kinds of memories are what kids carry with them through life.

    Pros

    Well maintained, Dog friendly

    Cons

    None

  • 12. Great Place for Dogs

    by: corky1999

    This is one of those local parks that's great for people and dogs. It's not a dog park. It's a people park that welcomes dogs. And there's a wonderful lake where your dog can swim. Good walking trails for you and your dog in a peaceful wooded setting. Easy access, too

    Pros

    Run, Swim, Walk -- it's all here

    Cons

    None

  • 13. Me and my dog's favorite place!

    by: LaurenS

    My mum or I walk our dog here every day. It's such a great place for us and our Sammi. Lot's of trail through beautiful woods, surrounding a gorgeous lake where the dogs swim. Clean and you'll meet many other dog walkers there. Just be careful about letting your dog off the leash, friends of ours have gotten pricey citations for being caught without leashing dog. It's a beauitful place and it's nice for Sammi also because she has "made friends" with dogs we often see there.

    Pros

    lots of trail to walk

    Cons

    strict leash laws (can get cited!)
