Jal Lake Park, which is the centerpiece of a 10-acre recreational oasis in the
middle of the desert. The manmade lake, when viewed from the air, actually
spells out the name of the city (Jal) and resembles the cattle brand which
inspired the citys name. Jal Lake is periodically stocked with
fish which provides year-round fishing to the residents.
