Attraction details
Reviewed 19 October 2017 via mobile

Silver Lake is a beautiful place to go. There are a ton of geese and ducks and they are hilarious! Bring some bread along so you can feed them... The views are nice, the atmosphere is calm, it's a great place to come if you need some time alone, want to take a walk, or even to let the kids play... a must-see in Rochester!

Nice place to take a leisurely walk not far from downtown. Just walk some of the walk ways on the back side of the lake where it is nice and quiet. LOTS of migrating birds to observe in the fall.

Silver Lake is a nice place to take a stroll, see some ducks and geese, watch some birds and get some fresh air. The walking/biking path goes completely around the lake and makes a nice walk for people and dogs and is a good place to jog.

Always an amazing place to stop for a stroll around the park, feed the geese or just relax. Wear comfortable and older tennis shoes as all these birds leave behind a lot of waste. The restrooms need a update and good cleaning.

We had some spare time from the Mayo Clinic and decided to walk down to the lake. We saw the electric paddle boats and decided to hire one. We were given next to no information about how to use the motor, which, halfway through the hire fell away from the boat! We were not given life jackets until we asked for them a second time. The lake was not worth seeing and the boats decidedly not worth hiring.
