Lake
“1.7 miles. Our favorite place for a walk or a picnic! The walking trail goes around the lake, about 2 miles total. Say hello to the Swan couple Victor and Victoria! In the spring, you may also get to see them nesting or raising their Cignets (the nerdy name for baby swans) The lake is private, but we are members and as our guests you have access, but please be respectful of the posted rules and NO feeding the swans or other wildlife. ”

“If you love New York style pizza, this is the BEST place in town! They don't deliver, but they have a newly enlarged dining room for eat-in, or you can carry-out. Prices are competitive, and you will not be disappointed! If you are not in the mood for pizza, try their Super Special Cheese Steak Hoagie or even a big salad with chicken strips. They have another location on 220 N in Collinsville about 12 miles in the opposite direction.”
