Council Grove City Lake Park is the smaller of Council Grove's twin lakes and is located 3.5 miles northwest of Council Grove, Kansas. This 434 acre multi-use lake is surrounded by 348 waterfront cabins and homes. The Council Grove City Lake Park also includes five public park areas, boat ramps and city-owned common areas. This community is home to both permanent and weekend residents who enjoy water sports, fishing, wildlife and beautiful scenic views.The lake itself was originally built in 1942 by the City of Council Grove as its primary water source. Soon after its construction, however, locals began leasing resident lots from the city and constructing waterfront cabins for recreational use. Decades later, The City Lake Park is being transformed once again. Today, beautiful year-round lake homes are slowly being added to the lakefront landscape.
