Playground/Recreation Activities

The playground area is adjacent to the swimming and beach area and has good visibility to both places. The play area is a sand base ground and is very safe for the young ones. There are four ball diamonds with shale infields in the park that host minor ball, adult baseball, fastball and slo-pitch teams in the area.

Boating and Fishing

A trout pond is located in the south east corner of Macklin Lake Regional Park. This trout pond is maintained by the Macklin Wildlife Federation. Macklin Lake Regional Park has also installed an aeration system to rehabilitate the lake so stocked perch will survive year round. Macklin Lake is also used for recreational activities such as water skiing. All personal watercraft is permitted through the park gates. There is a concrete boat launch with a fixed aluminum dock.
