Here’s a look at some of your most exciting options.
Thompson Sail Charters
Have you ever wanted to try sailing? Or maybe you’re an experienced sailer but would like a chance to get to know the sites of Lake Lewisville? Whatever your reason for wanting to take to the water, Thompson Sail Charters can take care of your needs.
The company offers a private charter of a sail boat on Lake Lewisville. You can enjoy a day of site-seeing and amazing sunsets. You may even get the chance to take the wheel of the boat if you’re feeling confident!
Lake Park Golf Club
If you’re a keen golf player, the 18 holes at Lake Park Golf Club may well be your next challenge. The green fees are also reasonable, meaning you can play a demanding round for an affordable price.
The course is located along the banks of Lake Lewisville, making it a picturesque place to play your favorite game. There are two layouts to choose from: an 18-hole course that’s been nominated as one of the best places to play by Golf Digest magazine and a nine-hole executive course.
The golf course is well-suited for playing a round with friends or family, or for a corporate day out. In addition, they have PGA professional teachers to offer you golfing lessons. If you know when you want to visit, you can book your tee time in advance online to avoid disappointment.
If you’d like to test your abilities on several golf courses, Lewisville and the surrounding area have some other options for you to consider. There’s the Riddlewood Golf Course, which is lined with trees and features rolling hills. Alternatively, The Tribute seeks to offer you the experience of playing a links-style course that you’d usually only find in Scotland.
Lewisville Lake Park
If you don’t feel like a round of golf, Lewisville Lake Park is still well worth a visit. It offers the facilities you need for a great day out with the whole family, including picnic tables, a playground, fishing barge, and sites for tent and RV camping. This is all spread over 662 acres, giving you plenty of space to explore.
Entry costs $10, which includes the fee for the boat ramp. If you’re a Lewisville resident, you can take advantage of the discounted price of $3.
The park features a large number of trees. Many of the picnic areas are shaded so you can relax on bright sunny days. There are also several swim areas if you feel like getting into the water.
If you want to play some more serious sports, the park has a lot to offer. It’s equipped with several lighted soccer fields, baseball fields, softball parks, and football fields. You’ll also find parking spaces and restrooms located at these athletic facilities.
