Diver Lake

As you drive north on the Island Highway between Country Club Mall and Rutherford Mall, you’ll notice a little lake on the left. Diver Lake has a pretty wooden walkway, a playground, and there is an area with jumps for bikes. To get to Diver Lake, you need to get onto Labieux Rd between Bowen Rd and JinglePot Rd, and watch for the turnoff.
