This man-made lake is a part of a series of lakes constructed by The Grupe Companies in planned communities and developments across the United States. The lake holds 4,540,000 gallons of non-potable water and is approximately 2.8 acres. The lake is 9′ at its deepest point.

The purpose of the Lake is to serve as storm water retention basin for University Park as well as a filter system before the water passes into the City system and then into the Delta.
Lined with a rubber liner the lake loses less water than most other lakes that use a clay liner. The lakes filtration system is similar to a swimming pool but also adds air bubblers and fountains that circulate and clean the water.
