We stay close by and have visited this park through out the year. Great place for long walks, picnic, have a group gathering, and take brilliant photos. Tip: Check out the observatory close by if you are a star gazer.

Nice place to walk around the water and feed the geese running around. There is a play place for the kids and bonus some hills for sledding in the winter. Good place to go thats free

Walk around the lake on a maintained path, enjoy the children's park, watch a softball game or go fishing. Much to do and enjoy. You can watch the waterfowl and may even catch a glimpse of a fox.

We try and walk around the lake at least once a month. It is so beautiful this time of the year with the geese and the changing leaves.

We played here 3 times in late September while visiting Lincoln. The golf clubhouse staff were so nice and helpful - made us feel like locals. The course was well maintained and challenging enough for my husband who plays regularly. I am a beginner and...More

I really enjoy coming to Holmes Lake for a nice, long walk to relax as often as possible. The paths are well maintained and it's a beautiful view. The people (and dogs) that you meet along the way are usually very friendly. :) There is...More

No trampoline in the park. There is a business called Defy Gravity that is a trampoline park if you are looking for trampolines.
