There are lots of places to park in the shade; however, only a few tables near the water to enjoy a picnic. Restrooms are minimal but clean. Nice playground.

This Lake is great for picnics, fishing, canoeing, photo shoot , walking and bike trail. Is so peaceful and relaxing. The sound of the birds and beautiful view of the lake is mesmerizing.

Nice walking trails. Walkers should be careful of sharing some trails with bicyclists but everyone I encountered was respectful of the space. Spots for boaters, fishing plus picnic areas. Very enjoyable respite close to the airport.

This is a great place for taking pictures of birds, including bald eagles. There are 2 bald eagle couples that frequent the park often to fish in the lake and there are several juveniles flying about also.

This park has well-marked trails with great views. Very nice place to sit and reflect or have a meal at one of the several picnic tables while watching the serenity of the lake. Nice find!!!

The paved trail is in good shape and mostly shaded. The bridges are inaccessible due to construction. You are advised not to fish here. Just ok.

Lake Crabtree park, just off 140 in Cary, is an oasis for those in need of a nature fix. One side begins with a paved walking trail, the other side has a picnic area and playgrounds. It’s free and uncrowded.
