CBBA Park Information

Maiden Lane Waterfront Park – located at the base of Maiden Lane and Lake Dr. This park offers beautiful views of the lake, sunsets, and the Ring of Fire. This park features shaded green spaces, sandy sunny spots above the water, picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, and a swing set for kids.

Maiden Lane Picnic area – located between Maiden Lane and Mayflower Rd along Lake Dr. On July 21, 2013 a waterfront park in Crystal Beach at Maiden Lane was dedicated in memory of lifelong Crystal Beach resident Nicholas Murphy Jr with a ceremony attended by family, friends and area residents. “Nick” as he was known, was a great husband, father, family man and very active member of the community known by all. He dedicated a tremendous amount of time improving the community, parks and waterfront areas through fund raising and volunteer events and as a long term President of the Crystal Beach Betterment Association. One of his last efforts was to raise attention and funds to clear the overgrown land parcel at Maiden Lane and make it into a beautiful park area with a walking path, park benches and picnic tables.
