Park History

Lewis Lake Park

Located on the West Hill of Auburn, Lewis Lake Nature Park was completed in 2020. It is a passive recreation area, named after former Mayor Peter B. Lewis.

The small footbridge that crosses a wetland area at the north end of the pond was built in 2020 with donated labor from the Auburn Noon Lions Club.

In the essence of preserving nature and environmental stewardship, care was taken during construction of the park to avoid removing trees. The path meanders around cedars, native conifers, and alders under a mature tree canopy. At any given time many different species of birds can be observed at the park including great blue herons, ducks, geese, song birds and the occasional raptor. Fishing in the pond is not great, but it is not uncommon to see neighborhood kids fishing for sun fish at the south end of the pond.

Park Access

Access is from the east side of the park along W Street where there is a small gravel parking area. From there a short offshoot trail leads to the main trail around the pond. As with all parks in Auburn if you visit Lewis Lake Nature Park please respect nature and the neighboring private property owners.
