Its a well kept small park. There are picnic tables and plenty of parking - easy in/out access. They provide bathrooms and have minimal trails, good for short strolls but not hard core hiking.

Wife and I enjoyed a walk around the Lake with our Shitzu TJ and saw many wildlife such as rabbits, catbirds, barn swallows, blue jays and several raptors that were out fishing on the lake. Nice place to keep your boat.

We don't live too far from the lake, so we go back pretty regular to walk. Most times you see wildlife. There are deer and wild turkeys. The scenery is so nice and it's very peaceful while walking.

Memorial Lake is a place we visit occasionally as a family for an evening picnic and a walk along the lake and over the dam. Occasional fish and wildlife can be seen and the hiking areas are partly shade and partly sunny.
