This blog won't have us diving 10,000 leagues under the sea, but we can go anywhere between three feet and fifteen feet deep looking at the variety of fish and fowl that now call Lake Broadway home!
Before we look at the inhabitants of the lake, how did the lake come to be?
The manmade Lake Broadway was completed in spring of 1995 and took more than eight months to complete and spans 100 feet across and one mile in diameter.
Now to the fish & Fowl Facts…
Since its beginning, several species of fish fill the lake located in the center of Broadway at the Beach including Israeli Carp, White Amur, Bream, Catfish and crawfish. Yes, we said crawfish!
Above the water, ducks, cranes, seagulls, egrets and other birds have made Lake Broadway their favorite hangout spot!
And let's just say, when you're feeding the fish from feeders, the birds are eager to catch a treat as well!
So the next time you're walking over the bridges of Broadway, be sure to look out for the swimmers below or see the wings flying in for their daily visit and homestead in Lake Broadway at Broadway at the Beach!
