Pine Hill Lakes Park is adjacent to Corwin M. Nixon Park. Two miles of nature trails, two fishing lakes, and wooded areas make this a relaxing park area. Known for butterflies in the open meadow and trees in the arboretum, Pine Hill Lakes Park is an oasis of serenity. It holds Pine Hill Lodge, built in 1943 and acquired by the city in 2007, where nature activities and learning experiences are held each year. There is a Wildlife Habitat certified by the National Wildlife Federation and a wildlife viewing area at the lodge.
The park has a rich history, with an old pool buried underground below the dam. The area was a private recreational space from the 1950s until the 1970s.
Pine Hill Lakes Park allows fishing throughout the year and is stocked a few times a year. Head to Mason Community Center to get your daily or annual fishing pass.
