I love running this lake. Perfect for beginners as there are no steep inclines and it’s pretty much flat terrain. There are some cracks and uneven asphalt so be mindful where you step. Parking is a pain at peak hours like after work and afternoon...More

This lake is absolutely beautiful, and a lovely place to walk morning or evening. You can see all kinds of aquatic birds, from Anhingas sunning & drying their wings to Ibises pecking around in the grass for a snack. The sidewalk is generally very well...More

We like to walk here in the evenings. It's perfect to walk and feel safe. The entire walk is well lit with plenty of homes around even when it's dark, you still feel safe.

I've been walking this lake since 1995 when we moved to Lakeland. It is a bird sanctuary and I've seen a great variety over the years. Usually if a gator gets too big and draws attention, they remove it. A paved path all the way...More

Have never seen anyone fishing in this lake. It is used mainly for small boats as there is a small yacht club situated here. Has a great walking trail around the entire 3 mile circumference.
