Quarry Lake is a great destination for scuba divers and swimmers looking for spring fed water. Sunbathers will love the expansive multi-level terraced beach. Once a limestone quarry, this park has been transformed into one of the best outdoor swimming and beach facilities in the area. As the name suggests, limestone rock was mined from the site years ago until flooding, and some of the equipment used in the mining operation was left behind. The park also offers picnic areas with grills, a large air-conditioned beach house with changing rooms, lockers, concessions, lavatories and showers. Scuba divers must be certified and pay a registration fee to enter and explore the depths of the Quarry Lake. A daily entrance fee ($1) is charged during the swimming season. Lifeguards are on duty daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
