This is a great place to run with several choices on distance. There is a 5k loop and also a loop that is a bit longer than a 10k. There are several places to park with lots of parking near the dog park/tennis courts.

We liked to walk along the shore with nice views on the lake. Makes the university campus even more attractive. Also some beautiful villas along the shore which are nice to look at.

It's basically a large lake area with paths around it for jogging. If you play Pokemon Go, there are lots of water pokemon here.

A large lake in the middle of the city that you can either explore by driving around or walking. By the university, you have the stately sorority houses (and not so great fraternity house) and then on the other side, beautiful neighborhoods with many nice...More
