Nice jogging trails. I have seen eagles, ducks, geese, swans, and deer on runs around the lake. Great place to take a dog for a walk. Has several playgrounds for kids. The lake was restocked a few years ago so fish are a little smaller.

Lake Zorinsky is a beautiful area but on a nice day it gets extremely busy. The trails are crowded and good fishing spots are limited. But if you go at the right time its more calm and a great place for a run or walk. If its too early or later in the night when its not as crowded you... More

Warmer winter than usual so far, but the one or two days that allowed for it, ice fishermen were out and about the lake. The ice was barely thick enough, but the lake offered great catch and release opportunities. Nice place to hang out with friends and enjoy the scenery and the hot chocolate.

I love this place. I live right up the street, and it is perfect access all year long for exercise, race participation, fishing, and general relaxation.

Lake Zorinsky is really just an okay place. I wouldn't send my kids here by themselves as there are a lot of people hanging out here that don't seem to have the best judgement. It's a nice place to walk around the lake but it's tough to find a time when it's not too crowded.

I used to walk my host family's dog around the lake while living in the USA. It was very relaxing and one feels like out in nature although being so close to a big city. Great for jogging too!

A lot of trails and a beautiful lake. Pretty busy on the weekends, but if you go on a week day afternoon, its perfect.

We love close and utilize this rec area weekly. It's wonderful for riding bikes and walking. I walked the west portion every day for a year and I never got bored of it. Every season brings a new look and new wildlife. Both sides (East and West) are beautiful and a nice walk or ride. It does get warm and... More
