Strawberry Lake Park
Sitting peacefully at the north end of downtown Norway, this park is a popular little station off City Loop Linear Park, as well as a destination all its own for many residents. One mile of pavement outlines small Strawberry Lake, passing Knights' Kingdom and other appealing sights, such as the petite pavilion shown above, along its way. Strawberry Lake Park includes a walking trail, a canoe/kayak launch, two accessible fishing piers, a ball field, tables and benches, a BMX track, and two parking areas. Accessible restrooms are next to the playground. In the winter weather, the walking trail is utilized for cross-country skiing, and an ice-skating rink beside the lake is fashioned, while a warming house waits close by. Skate your heart away from dawn 'til dusk--but the warming house may not hold the same hours! This winter's warming house hours are from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
