A nice trail, but perhaps a little too nice. It can be very busy on nice weekends. The main trail runs around the lake. A fairly level and easy trail around the lake. It is loud at the back corner where the trail runs between the lake and the highway, but worth it for the lake.

really nice, super easy walking trial. Good place to just take an hour out of your day and get some nature in. Part of the trial is literally right net to the highway... but it is still a nice walk even with the couple of minutes of city noise.

this is a very nice clean and friendly trail. nice well kept gravel trail 1.5 miles that's mostly in the shade with plenty of places to stop and have a picnic under covered picnic tables and very nice decks over the water to go fishing from. Also a few benches around the lake to just sit and relax. they also have exercise stations along the trail and a play area for kids, it is truly a lovely place.

This is a very nice, easy trail with several fitness stop. It's built around a large lake. A lot of people walk their dogs here and it tends to get very crowded so parking can be difficult.

Oak Grove Lake Park is a great family and dog friendly park. It has a trail that loops completely around the lake. There are several decks with safety rails along the lake. You can definitely stop and sit on benches at each deck to look at the beautiful water. There are also a few picnic tables at the entry side. The trail gets muddy very easily on the far side of the lake when it rains. Wear rain boots or aqua shoes if there has been any precipitation in the last 2 weeks.

Great family park. The trail around the lake is great for running walking or biking.
The Park does get crowded on weekend.

I enjoy the wide trail with shade 2/3 of the way around the lake. On a hot day, you turn left to stay in the shade and turn around when you hit the end of the shade. This is a total of 2 miles round trip from the parking lot. There is usually people around most of the time.

Beautiful, shady, and spacious trails. Great scenery of the lake. Several posts that instruct you to do activities such as jumping jacks and pull up. Areas for picnic and playgrounds.

This is a beautiful trail around a beautiful lake. The trail is smooth and I believe it is accessable all the way around. There are picinic areas, fishing platforms and viewpoints. The loop trail around the lake is 1.5 miles but add in the connector trail to the parking lot and you will do at least 1.75.
