Great place to walk!!

I came here for a 70 degree day in February. The trail was maintained and was well lit. I saw people walking kids and biking. I would recommend this place.

A smelly lake that connects various parts of the greenway system. Floods often when raining and could use some groundskeeping.

Shelley Lake is a favorite place for locals to walk, run and bike. The trails are well maintained. Be sure to take some old bread or ceral to feed the ducks.

We were looking for a place to throw a frisbee and football around for a bit and decided on Shelley Lake Park. Parking is a breeze and there is a trail that leads straight to a huge field that is perfect for throwing a frisbee. There is also a trail that goes around the lake with a small fishing dock...

I've spent many hours going around this park. Parking at Sertoma makes it easy to access the trail around the lake.

I love everything about this park because the nature is what brings me back. It's great if you want to exercise, fish, walk your dog or bike ride.

Great Lake to walk around as the scenery changes and very popular with families and dog walkers. Go early morning in summer before it gets hot, great to walk in the afternoon on cooler days. Kids play area by car parking as well

I've gone here many times! I love taking my dog or going for a jog there. It's peaceful and clean. Everyone I come across there are always friendly. There are a lot of dogs there so be aware if you get nervous around them. It's a great place for picnics and reading too. Even when there are higher volumes of... More

I have lived in Raleigh about a year-and-a-half now and consider Shelley Lake park one of my favorite parks here. Raleigh has a myriad of parks but what I like about Shelley park is all the things you can do there and the trail is just over two miles on one of the trails so it is a doable walk... More
