Overlook Park is a public, day-use park with spectacular views of Canyon Lake’s south side. Trek through the park’s 1-mile loop hiking trail or meander the Verada Real walking trail, which will take you all the way across the dam. Have your phone handy for pictures—as the park’s name implies, you’ll find overlook points that are worth a snapshot.

You can reach the water through Overlook Park’s trails down to the lake. There are several unofficial swimming areas where people go to spend the day and cool off. If you bring food, be aware that this park doesn’t include picnic tables.
