It is a day for boats, swimming and relaxing. The sun has that August angle, with a softness not felt earlier in the summer. Many Auburn residents and guests are enjoying the water in a variety of ways as seen here in the pictures.
The park is at the upper end of the lake, unlike what is true in Ithaca. Emerson Park contains the Merry Go Round theater, a beach, and pavilions. There is a paved walkway out along the dredged inlet, which affords a very nice leisurely walk. It is impressive how much has been invested to make this a pleasant recreation site.
