    Great people watching, good place to go for a run as long as it isn't a Saturday in the summer. It gets CROWDED! Early morning or evening is best for fewer people.

    There are great views of the lake, a small island on the lake's northwest corner called Duck Island & lots of people watching. It's a very popular park for dog walkers, cyclists, rollerbladers & more. Read more

    A 2.8 mile trail with perfect view of the lake at the center. Great neighborhood too! I'll try to bring a bike next time!

    The outside loop is always less crowded, so you don't have to dodge all the walkers. And most of it's dirt instead of pavement, so it's not as hard on your knees.

    Ladies, beware...creepy, methy skinhead on a bike, asking all sorts of odd questions. I've seen him a few times between 5-6:30

    Beautiful rain or shine. Often see turtles, herons, and lots of ducks. Great people watching too. Love to run here with the runner stroller.

    Gorgeous trail. I planned to run it; alas, after a mile, that devolved into plan B. But it is just as pleasant for walking.

    Careful of people who don't read the signage on the trails and walk in the wheel lane reserved for bikers and rollerbladers

    Great for a nice walk around the lake. 2.5miles and the people watching is the best.

    I run here daily, in hopes of seeing the super hot and shirtless Italian guy. I do believe he's my motivation!
