The large pavilion situated on the edge of the lake hosts banquets, community events and features three restaurants, recreational rentals and a marina. Thousands of people congregate there in the winter for the Winterlude festival, and in the summer it becomes a fully functional marina with recreational equipment available for rent; including canoes, kayaks and paddleboats.
