Although the lake attracts a lot of birds, the neighborhood is not safe We have been there twice during daylight and were harassed the second time and didn’t feel comfortable either time. The neighborhood is in the news regularly for crime.

Went here In April 2019 to see the birds. Great park. Lovely area. Lots of water fowl.

I'm sure the trail is fine however the dead body found in the lake three weeks ago might disagree. PLEASE research area before deciding to wander in looking for a nice walk. Few months ago a lady was shot in the leg a few blocks away at 10:30 AM. Research for yourself before going.

This can be a dangerous area. There are better areas close by in my opinion

Dangerous at night, high crime neighborhood. Day light provides a easy walk with many other walkers.

Very nice for morning walks and workout routines. Quiet, pleasant scenery and very light trafficking. Love it!
