Westwood Park was created by the Big Blue River Conservancy District and opened to the public in 1974. The park’s main attraction is a 180-acre lake. Formed by an earthen dam, the resulting lake serves several purposes: sediment storage and flood control for Big Blue River: water for municipal or industrial water supply, and recreation. The facility covers approximately 800 acres.
Non-motorized boats only and protected by old growth forests makes this charming lake great for first timers or those seeking a quiet afternoon relaxing on the water. There are hiking and biking trails and a nice campground with new bath house for those wishing to make a weekend out of it. Also, Summit Lake State park and Prairie Creek Reservoir are within a short 30 minute drive.
Please check the Westwood Park website for more detailed information about the park.
