Lake Thom-A-Lex Park is a favorite with local fisherman and as a nearby urban getaway. Kayaks are available for rent and the park now has a beautiful one-mile walking trail that skirts along the lake side.
The park has a large playground along with four picnic shelters that can be reserved weekdays and weekends for all types of events. Each shelter has a maximum capacity of 30 people. Shelters can be rented year round.
The Bait Shop is open from April 1 to September 30 where fishing supplies can be purchased as well as drinks, snacks and picnic supplies. There are multiple piers for fishing, but no swimming, pleasure boating, water skiing, or jet skiing is allowed.
