several playground areas, picnic sites, and recreational facilities. There are three picnic shelters and one bandstand for public use. While on
the Island you can observe the deer, take a walk along the scenic trails, or enjoy the abundance of Canada
Geese that call Crescent Lake home.
If you are interested in sports, you can enjoy a round of golf at the 18-hole
