Glen Lake Rotary Park Reviews & Ratings

  • It is a good family friendly park with a cold pond. Popular for paddle boarding and other water float devices. Only pavilion they have is small so bring your own shade. Lots of lawn area to spread out. It is supposed to be a tobacco free park but with noone on duty to enforce that, people will do whatever they want regardless of the signs. There are no public restrooms

  • I've been bringing my children here for 15 years and it's a good place for a fun water area. It's usually pretty busy, so unless you happen to come on a slow day, be prepared to claim a relatively small space in the sand (There are several covered picnic tables, and BBQ areas, but they are also almost always claimed.) The beach area is okay. There's usually some garbage, but it's mostly clean. You're not supposed to bring dogs, but there's usually someone who doesn't think the rules apply to them and bring their dogs anyways. There are porta potties and outdoor restrooms. Nothing fancy, but they'll do the job. There's also a dock to jump off, a little fishing dock, occasional ducks and I believe there's a volleyball court, so there's quite a few things here other than water and sand. There's also the occasional drinking, smoking, swearing group of teens/young adults, so just be prepared for that possibility. It's usually not bad, but I've definitely witnessed a fair amount of rambunctious behaviorover the years. Still, my little ones enjoy playing in the sand, splashing in the water and watching the occasional train and plane pass close by while they play. For a small mountain town, it's a good "Beach" area.

  • The only real negative I will say about this spot is that the bathrooms were closed so there is no place to change clothes for swimming. I believe thy had porta potties set up but there were no signs to tell people where to go to find them which is difficult with small children in tow. Other then that this is a lovely park with walking trails and a great beach with picnic tables under shelter. Just need to fix that bathroom facilities.

  • Good place for kids. Nice beach with very little grade. Lots of sand to dig in. Free access to the public. Non-motorized watercraft only.

  • Stopped by here for a little walk, nice and beautiful scenery
