Mill Creek and Bennington Lake is part of a flood management project for the surrounding areas, during flash floods the water is diverted – protecting the nearby lands.
Bennington Lake provides the people nearby a way to get outdoors without having to travel too far out of the city. The lake is stocked in the spring time with trout, and only non-motorized watercraft are permitted.
You will find park benches and shelters along the trails, convenient to pause and enjoy views of The Blue Mountains over the lake.
