Fall ImageEcho Dale Regional Park is an oasis for people and wildlife and has more than 110,000 visitors each year. Our patrons range from sun-loving swimmers to those who enjoy sitting around a fire at night, to the regulars who walk the trails each day throughout the year, no matter how bad the weather!   

From the historic farm site on the west side of the park to the day use area on the far east side of the park and all the others areas in between, the pristine condition of Echo Dale Regional Park is a favorite. Claim your favorite spot around the Swim Lake or set up for a family picnic at the boat lake which is stocked with rainbow trout for those wanting to fish.  

New playground equipment in the shape of a pirate ship sits on the beach at the swim lake and new playground equipment at the boat lake, all add up to summertime fun!
