At the 1972 March Park Board meeting Lemon Lake County Park was named after the small marsh area that had historically been called by that name. Thus, Lemon Lake was the first Lake County Park opened to the public.
Today, the park encompasses 403 acres of rolling hills and open space surrounded by wooded areas. A One mile paved trail around the lake and more than 5 miles of primitive trails in hilly wooded terrain provide a wonderful opportunity for a nature walk. Lemon Lake is more than passive recreation however. It is home to softball fields, open play areas, a large creative playground, two sand volleyball courts, five 18-hole disc golf courses, fishing, picnicking, volleyball standards, and Dogwood Run, a leash-free dog area.
With a variety of disc golf courses, a great creative playground, volleyball courts, and cross country ski programs in the winter Lemon Lake is a recreational favorite.
