Looking to get out and enjoy the outdoors? There is a wonderful around the lake asphalt/concrete trail that wanders around this lake. With the bridge at 168th Street, you can do change up the lengths and routes. We like the east loop, which is almost exactly 4.5 miles. Park off of 156th Street entrance and complete one loop on the... More

With clean nicely maintained facilities, walkways and grills, Lake Zorinsky makes a great year round location to be outside. There are soccer fields and picnic beaches, a large lake and boating ramps. It has spacious walkways that circle the entire lake and benches if you need to sit down. Grab a snack, maybe some friends and enjoy!

Great place for a bike ride or run, lovely lake for fishing. I am not sure if they allow boating. Nice for a picnic or walk too. Beautiful area.

great lake to take a boat out and go fishing or maybe even a bit of water skiing. There are some pretty good fish in this lake.

Nice jogging trails. I have seen eagles, ducks, geese, swans, and deer on runs around the lake. Great place to take a dog for a walk. Has several playgrounds for kids. The lake was restocked a few years ago so fish are a little smaller.

Lake Zorinsky is a beautiful area but on a nice day it gets extremely busy. The trails are crowded and good fishing spots are limited. But if you go at the right time its more calm and a great place for a run or walk. If its too early or later in the night when its not as crowded you... More

Warmer winter than usual so far, but the one or two days that allowed for it, ice fishermen were out and about the lake. The ice was barely thick enough, but the lake offered great catch and release opportunities. Nice place to hang out with friends and enjoy the scenery and the hot chocolate.

I love this place. I live right up the street, and it is perfect access all year long for exercise, race participation, fishing, and general relaxation.

Lake Zorinsky is really just an okay place. I wouldn't send my kids here by themselves as there are a lot of people hanging out here that don't seem to have the best judgement. It's a nice place to walk around the lake but it's tough to find a time when it's not too crowded.
