Park Alert

The City of Medina is enforcing a no-wake restriction on Lake Independence, in accordance with section 512 of the city code. The water level of the lake has been higher than 957.8 feet above sea level for at least three days. This restriction applies to the entire area of the lake. Check back for updates.

Located on scenic Lake Independence, Baker Park Reserve offers 2,700 acres of natural landscape and accommodations for almost any activity from golfing to camping to cross-country skiing, and so much more. No matter the season, there’s always something fun to do.

We take great care to preserve the natural beauty of this park through the efforts of our Natural Resources division. Volunteers are an important part of this work. Please contact us for opportunities in this or a variety of other volunteer-based roles.
