Lakeside Park

In 2006 the Town of Granite Falls purchased 72 acres of property from Crescent Resources, LLC located on scenic Lake Rhodhiss. The property was acquired through a $540,000 grant from the NC Clean Water Management Trust Fund and a $250,000 grant from the NC Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (Part F). The Town added $129,000 in local money to complete the purchase. The primary goals of this project are to protect the Town's public water supply (located just downstream from this property) and to provide recreational opportunities to the citizens of Granite Falls.

The Lakeside Park features numerous trails for walking/hiking and mountain biking. The clearly marked trails are interspersed with opportunities to enjoy the water front views, have a picnic or do a little fishing.

The park features three separate fishing decks that have been strategically located to afford the best opportunities for success and provide fantastic views of the lake.

A picnic shelter is available for birthday parties, family gatherings or just relaxing by the lake and enjoying the scenery and wildlife. Bathroom facilities are also available. Reservations for the picnic shelter can be made by calling the Granite Falls Recreation Department at 396-1221.
