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.

Popular walking, running or biking spot. Always busy. Asphalt trail circles the lake. Water ski show on certain Sundays. Home to ducks and gators.

Enjoyable 3 mile walk around the lake. Many people park by the yacht club and run, walk, ride bicycles around the lake for exercise.

Great lake to walk, bike, cycle, rollerskate around. About 3 miles around it, beautiful view all the way around (sometimes gators, it is Florida) but a wonderful place to get some exercise and fresh air.

Enjoyed the local community feel of this walking path. Everyone shared the space. I noticed there was a fountain for pets also.

This is my favorite lake in Lakeland. The nearly 3 mile paved path around the lake is perfect for runners, walkers, & cyclists. On one side is the unobstructed view of the lake, and on the other side are aesthetically pleasing structures such as stately...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.
