    Lake Hefner is our water supply. You can sail – it really is a lovely place to sail, my 1st sail was on Hefner as the sun set, just so pretty!) – kite board or wind surf, but the last 2 activities aren’t very common. LOTS of sailboats though!!

    There are at least 2 parks for kids (or kid at heart), & Lake Hefner is a great oasis in OKC when you can’t take a trip. Even just having a picnic out there (there are tables and places to cook burgers and hot dogs!) is a nice break. I will send in some pix soon that better capture the beauty of the sun setting and rising, and just how pretty it is! A lot of people walk, run and roller skate on the sidewalks that go around the lake, it’s a great place for those activities as well.

    I am surprised to see the girls on I guess surfboards in the lake since that’s illegal & not at all what you will find at Hefner (so if you’re worried about how you look in a bathing suit? Don’t.:) Just wear your shorts in summer, bundle up when it’s cooler & remember that it is always colder by the water. And windy, but that is just OKC! I really love Lake Hefner, it’s cooler than anything new & costly in OKC. <3 Oh and several restaurants very close, you can eat outside which I always choose to do.
