Lake Smetana is a nature retreat in the midst of suburban office buildings and highways. A 1.6-mile trail loops around Lake Smetana, and a park on the north side provides places to picnic and view wildlife.

Water Quality

Due to high phosphorus levels in the summer, Lake Smetana’s water quality is poor. Phosphorus feeds algae, which blooms on the lake in the summer and decreases the clarity of the water.
