Spanning approximately 50 acres, Lake Ashby is a beautiful natural lake. Residents of the Brookside community enjoy catch-and-release fishing from the shore or from the dock. Residents have been known to catch small sunfish, and large catfish and bass! Enjoy a picnic at the different picnic spots along the lake, or walk miles of mulch trails connecting Lake Ashby to Lake Brittle. Bring your binoculars and watch for our beautiful swans, heron and eagles or relax and enjoy the sunset on one of our new benches. Any time of day or year Lake Ashby is a beautiful spot!
