Time at Lake Atalanta
There are lots of outdoor recreation opportunities in the Rogers area, including spending time at Lake Atalanta, boasting two separate parks on its grounds. A reservoir built during the Great Depression, Lake Atalanta is Rogers' second-oldest park, so you can give the kids quick history lessons while you fish for rainbow trout in the stocked lake. If fishing is not your thing, you can participate in everything from mini golf to swimming in the Olympic-sized pool. This is also a great location for outdoor family gatherings and celebrations, including birthday picnics and family reunions.
