Buck Griffin Lake was completed in 2007, a man-made body of water transforming an unused portion of the park system into one of the area's favorite parks. It is also a part of the Port City Trail system.
This pet-friendly park offers a covered pavilion with picnic table, and freshwater fishing for the kids. Public restrooms are available nearby at Tom "Dooder" Parker Park-Forest Park South (16th Street), located across another footbridge on the northern end of Buck Griffin Lake.
A brand new Disc Golf Course spreads throughout Buck Griffin Lake and Tom "Dooder" Parker Park -Forest Park South.
