Stewart Park—Stewart Lake Professional Review and Guide
"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."
