The 27-acre man-made lake is located just off of Little Patuxent Parkway, across from the Columbia Mall. It is a popular gathering spot for many summer festivals including the Fourth of July fireworks.
Parking is limited in the lots near the lake. It is within walking distance to the mall, so attendees usually park in the mall parking lots. Little Patuxent Parkway will be closed after 7 p.m. so you should arrive early and plan accordingly.
