Beautiful homes, trees and various birds enhance this 3 mile walk. It's a nice wide path. Perfect for walking the dog. There's parking too with easy access. Definitely a must stop if you're in the Lakeland area.

This three mile walking path around a very scenic lake is excellent. Plenty of parking available, although there are no restrooms.

Love a leisurely walk? This is a great place to do just that! A wonderful 3 mile walk around the lake. Lovely homes, beautiful water views, and various birds adorn the lake. You will pass the Florida Southern College where you will see Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. Enjoy!!

This is it! Anyone who is anyone owns a home on Lake Hollingsworth. Home to the world's largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright collection of architecture at Florida Southern College. And the lake is three miles around, with a paved walkway. The walkway is popular with both college students and residents.

Walked the lake with my teens. Trail is well maintained and scenic. Water fountain was not working :( Poop bags by the west side of the lake. A nice way to spend a hour!

This is a great place to walk. You can park in the lot by the Yacht Club and then head either direction around the lake. The entire walk is about three miles. Perfect any time of the year and very dog friendly. Be sure to pick up after your dog! They do provide bags along the walkway and watering stations.... More
