Newcastle Beach Park and Luther Beach Park are lovely places to spend a lazy afternoon reading a book, having a picnic, or collecting chestnuts in the fall months. The latter borders the water and contains a beach and a pleasant coastal walk as its name suggests.
At nearby Lake Washington, travelers can venture into the water on a boat and try their hand at freshwater fishing, since many different species of fish reside within the water's depths.
