Big Lake is a stand-out amenity for those living in the Silver Springs neighborhood. The park encompasses a large trout filled lake which is enjoyed by many with self-propelled watercraft as well as a large and beautiful park area complete with a pavillion, basketball and volleyball courtts, playground, and loads of room for playing with the kids or dogs...or just lazing under a tree.
