Enjoy waterfowl, turtles, waterlilies, raccoons, opossums, and birdlife at this lake. Everyone simply calls this body of water Stewart Lake, but it actually interconnects Stewart Lake with a number of very small unnamed lakes. Stewart Lake itself is hugged on the northeast side by the 45-acre Stewart Park, which includes a boat launch with a floating dock, playground, portable toilets, restroom facility, and tree-studded, lakeside picnic area with tables. The lake is easily accessible and is very convenient for those living in the urban region. In some areas the woods are thin, leaving only a modest screen between you and civilization; elsewhere they provide a thick blanket of insulation. Upland woods of maple, hickory, sassafras, tulip, ash, and pine delight you with splashes of red, orange, and yellow in fall and cool greens in summer.
