detail of mapThe nine acre lake is home to many species of domestic and migratory birds as well as large fish and turtles. The lake is used for daily walks both by students and staff of LMC as well as the outside campus community with stretching stations along its shores.

The water that fills the lake is collected rainwater from various sources. When there is not enough rainwater the lake is filled with water from the canal south of the campus. The water in the lake is then used for irrigation of the campus grounds.
