Initial Visit: August 18th, 2013 (Much earlier if I count my childhood)
Rating: 5/5
Price: Free / $ for Paddle Boats

Description: Sunny skies. Ducks quacking. Lines cast. Boats paddled. Pekin Lagoon pulls out a lot of memories from kids as it tends to be their first fishing place. I know it was mine and a few others. Casting a line off of the docks and catching Sun Fish is a cherished memory that I still relive to this day. The Lagoon offers Paddle Boats for those who want a good leg workout… er…. to traverse the waters and play chicken with the water fountains with your paddle mate.

The Lagoon is also great if you want to simply walk around and enjoy a nice blend of civilization and recreation. Free place to fish, walk and enjoy nature without being too far from civilization.
