Such a relaxing walk enjoying the beautiful water views and scenery. If you are lucky you can see a gator!! It would be nice if some restaurants or shoppes were there for visitors.

Beautiful place to sit and relax, walk along the water, fish, feed the ducks, or talk to some of the local people there. A quite, peaceful spot.

Lovely and relaxing stroll along the lake. Water is inky around the marina, very dark. Enjoyed the peace and quiet.

The walk is about 1 1/2 miles from start to finish oneway. The walk is well lighted and very easy to do. Has places to stop along the way to rest or just site see.

This is a beautiful place to walk or sit on one of the many benches (some are swings) and watch the boats or people. It has some beautiful sunsets too. Very nice place to just relax!
