Great for walking, I see people on bikes but be careful - tree roots have made the pavement very uneven. Don't even think about roller skating or skateboarding. It's always bustling with people, and winds through apartments and houses so there's always a lot of...More

Great place to go for a walk, watch turtles, or feed the ducks. Watch out for bikers... but it is usually nice quiet walk

It's a little over 2 miles around--just the right distance for a leisurely morning, afternoon or evening stroll, a brisk walk, or a heart-pumping jog. Lots of wildlife like ducks, blue heron, geese, turtles, and just lovely scenery-- especially in autumn when the colored leaves...More

Wonderful place to walk, jog or bike. There is a hard surface trail around the lake 2 1/2 Miles, easy to walk. With two public access points, Lynne Rd and Ray Rd, There is always plenty of people walking and it is very safe.
