Happy Halloween. - It's 70 degrees outside and the Fall Colors are popping at Centennial Lake. - With the weather being so nice the park was super crowded with Hiker, Walker, Runners and tons of Dogs. With the puppies, we added a few of the earthen dirt trail but basically the entire park has blacktop paved trails. This was the first time we brought our two Beagles here. - They Loved It. - Being a senior, I get into ALL Federal and State Parks free. - A.A. County Parks is a different story. They charge seniors 5 dollars and others 6. ** Howard County Parks are FREE. **

Great to walk with the family. Paved, plenty of shade, and lots of good water views. Also a nice playground to stop along the way.

Beautiful easy walk around the lake. Plenty of room for walkers, joggers, strollers, people with dogs. The only problem was today I was pushing my husband in the wheelchair, so a few of the hills were pretty tough. ALSO...they need to have a porta-potty somewhere on the trail. Half-way, maybe??

Lovely lake with paved trail around it; only moderately crowded except on Saturday mornings when whole running groups come through. It's also a nice place just to take a picnic on the dock or on the picnic tables by the kids' playground. It's a good place to learn to kayak as the lake is a manageable size.

Easy to walk. Some small inclines and declines. All paved. Less crowded at sunset and gorgeous; bring a flashlight if you're still out when it's dark!

Nice but sometimes too many people. I prefer the more heavily wooded, dirt trails around the area.

Centennial park offers a nice paved trail around Centennial Lake. Relatively flat with bikers, hikers, and runners. Great family atmosphere with people of all ages on the trail. Not many trails off the main paved trail. Walk this regularly and have never seen it overly crowded but also never empty.

It is a staple 2.4mile paved lake loop with a few modest trail off-shoots. The non-paved trails I have checked out are mostly deadenders or spill into backyards and culdesacs. the lake loop is nice, some flat, some very modest rises.

One of Columbia premier lakes with walking path around it. Great for everyone including FIDO.
