Dows Lake Pavilion has a beautiful location, jutting out into and overlooking the lake. This facility has a number of different restaurants, including an outdoor patio that is very popular in summer. The pavilion also looks out over the docks where it’s possible to rent paddleboats, canoes, kayaks, or bikes. In winter, you can rent skates and sleds, and the park hosts events during the Winterlude festival. In the spring, it’s decorated with formal tulip displays during the Tulip Festival.
