I've been to Lake Hefner many times while on business in Oklahoma City. It's a good sized lake, but the water level was down significantly the last couple of years because of the drought. I've not seen many boats on the water. There is a nice park with playground equipment for the kids and plenty of walking paths. There is... More

A place to have a run or walk or even to bike on the bike trail. A lot of people in this park. There are also places to barbecue or to have a picnic.

Hefner Lake is a beautiful place to get away from the busy city. As soon as you drive up, you no longer feel like you are in Oklahoma City. There is a jogging path that circles the entire lake (around 10 miles). It is a great place for picnics, canoeing, kite boarding, wind surfing, and sailing. There are many great... More
