More About Sunset Lake
This small lake off Franklin Street boasts wide-open views, a spewing water fountain, and plenty of parking. Rough sand rings the lake and an elegant gazebo adds a touch of whimsy. There's fishing, swimming (with lifeguards present), a playground and picnic tables. And don't miss the geese chasing seagulls away from their food. Plenty of benches also form a half-circle around the lake front, perfect for watching a sunset or resting after a long day on the water.
