The Lake held two functions: one was to provide water recreation for the community and also to help protect the city’s water supply by acting as a recharge basin for the aquifer.
It’s a beautiful park with some of the best recreational options in Dayton Ohio: Power boats, sailboats, kayaking, fishing, picnicing, and a popular bike trail. Mountain Days is held there every summer with some nationally known traditional, bluegrass, and country music acts. Check the calendar, here.
Highlights of Eastwood MetroPark include a 185-acre lake, Mad River, picnic shelters and a playground. The 3-mile loop trail offers hiking opportunities on mostly level terrain. Try fishing in Eastwood Lake or the Blue Lake or the Mad River. Bring the family and the boat out to Eastwood MetroPark for a fun-filled day on the water, or just enjoy a serene sojourn on the trails.
