Geneva Lake is one of the few lakes to offer public access along the lakeshore.
This access is for everyone to enjoy. This wonderful, approximately 20 plus mile path, has been preserved by early settlers and the twenty feet leading to the shoreline still remains public domain. Every property owner on the lake takes great pride in maintaining the area they share, creating unique differences along the path, and making it all the more beautiful. The path includes areas of grass, cement, brick, wood, stepping stones, and gravel. Be prepared for diverse terrain, some of it hilly, narrow, and very wooded, but all naturally beautiful. Get your hiking shoes on and check it out before summer slips away, although fall is a great time, weather permitting, to experience the path as well.
Art in the Park is back.
Art in the Park is back for its 41st annual celebration, hosted by the Geneva Lakes Arts Foundation in Flat Iron Park. Festivities will take place Saturday, August 14th, and Sunday, August 15th, where visitors can explore, view, and purchase unique artwork while enjoying a beautiful view of Geneva Lake. This juried fine art show will showcase more than eighty acclaimed artists, displaying multiple types of art, including clay/pottery, wood, watercolor, fiber, glass, sculpture, photography, printmaking, jewelry, metal, different types of painting techniques, and mixed media. A ‘just for kids’ activity area will be set up in the gazebo for children of all ages to enjoy a ‘take and make’ art piece using a variety of materials. Don’t forget to stop by the silent auction tent for an opportunity to bid on artwork donated by artists. Free parking and shuttle services will be available Saturday and Sunday from the Home Depot parking lot on Edwards Boulevard and from US Bank on Center Street. The shuttles run continuously every twenty minutes.
