Stroll around the lake. If traveling it’s a nice spot for a picnic. Otherwise it’s a local park and attraction. No need to get off the highway.

Very pleasant taking a late morning stroll around the lake. And enjoyed the metalwork animal figures generously dotted around the lakeside.

This place is great for a peaceful walk. 4 times around this lake should be equal to a full mile. If you have a pet, they will enjoy this walk!

Right next to the Old Power Station in Rocky Mount NC is a small lake with a fountain whose cascading drops ring out the tenseness and relaxes like a rainy day, but without the rain. The park has a paved walkway around the lake and...More

The City Lake has some new sculptures all around the lake on the walk. They are more than worth the time to see them all. You can just sit in the Gazebo or on the many benches along the walk, take time to feed the...More

Me & my friends always meet at the lake when we all are home. Still a great place for walking, feeding the ducks or taking prom pictures. They could use a public bathroom​. Nevertheless we always just relaxing at the city lake.
