One of the newest projects is to enhance the fishing experience at the lake.
"The new family fishing cove which will be adjacent to the new playground will have access and will be stocked on a regular basis and the only requirement is that you bring a child with you, doesn't have to be yours," said Morris.
Game and Fish is stocking the lake with catfish, brim, bass, tilapia and even occasionally trout.
"Craighead Forest Park is really a venue for people to come out and experience nature in somewhat of a suburban environment and this is a place you can walk in the woods, mountain bike or even catch big catfish," said Wilkie.
In addition to the lake renovation work is being done to the shoreline, playgrounds, and camping areas at the park.
The Parks and Recreation Department anticipate the renovation project will be completed in 3 years when the stocked fish advance to maturity.
