I stop by this reservoir all the time to enjoy the park and to fly my drone. It's well maintained and easy to get around. I see lots of walkers, runners and fishing folks so a little of everything.

Pinched between suburbia neighborhoods, this park provides a quick nature fix for trailgoers. A crushed gravel .6-mile trail circles the recently renamed Erie Reservoir (it's still labeled Thomas Reservoir on most maps). The trail is wide enough for baby strollers too.
