Nature Play Opportunities

At Harlow Platts Community Park, children have the opportunity to explore nature in the form of Viele Lake, where they can explore and observe nature by passively watching or actively canoeing, kayaking or fishing. The path around Viele Lake is approximately 0.70 miles long and provides an area where children can walk alongside their family members and explore the area off-trail.


Non-motorized boats no longer than 14 feet are allowed on Viele Lake.  Use at your own risk: no swimming, sailboards, paddleboards or kiteboards. As always please wear a life jacket; we do not have any safety staff for this area.
