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!

Love walking around the lake. Children love the ducks and geese. Interesting sculptures throughout the park.

I have lived in Rocky Mount all of my life. City Lake is a place I immensely enjoyed as a kid. However, I would say that maintenance, groundskeeping, etc... precipitously fell by the wayside in the post-Hurrican Floyd (1999) era. However, with the Tar River Trail and the restoration of the Mill Village, City's Lake has also been given more attention. Metal sculptures, duck feed dispensers, and even an emergency phone pole have been added. I would recommend this as a place to take a leisurely walk, wet a hook, or have a picnic (large grassy area).

This is a wonderful place to take your family to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the lake. Whether you are relaxing in the gazebo, sitting amongst the ducks, or walking around, it's enjoyable and peaceful. Several people stop by to feed the ducks, take pictures, walk, or picnic. It's a nice place to dedicate 30 minutes to an hour for.
