My go to park to jog with friends and/or my dog. Plenty of shade, never crowded in the mornings during the weekdays, usually gets packed around 10ish on weekends. The perimeter of legg lake is 2.4 miles but there are other roads you could take to shorten or lengthen your walk/jog. Lovely trails for families & on weekends they have bikes and water equipment to rent out! Free to park during the weekdays, during weekends if you do not park at the main entrance the fee is $15...depending on vehicle.

Wonderful walking trail. It has multiple stations around the trail to do strength training.

Kids in a two child stroller the entire trail along the lakes. Hard dirt trails. Cool selfie locations by man made stream. Fun multi rider bike rentals. Shade is always nearby.

Easy trail with nice views, plenty of shaded areas, and lots of geese and ducks. Had a nice walk with my dog here this morning, and will definitely be back.

This is a nice place for a leisurely stroll, but it is crowded in the evening time when I went. There are tons of Canadian Geese, ducks and attractive grounds to gaze upon. I walked the perimeter and it came out to 3 miles according to AllTrails.

Nice walking around the lakes; can go various ways to extend the mileage. Enough shade so you don't get "toasty".

I like the partial asphalt And sandy Trail is a great beginner workout with flat elevation and short distance.

very easy and flat. you can make it longer than the 2.2 miles by going on the inner pathways between the lake. can get very crowded on weekends and during the summer days. parking is $6.00 per car on weekends but they do have 2 free parking areas on each side of the park. Mostly sunny pathways, bathrooms are all around but not too many water fountains.

It’s a very nice and peaceful spot for a brisk walk or a job. It isn’t isn’t much for hiking, but it’s great for the family and the dogs.

I love to run at this park. There's always people walking or running in the morning and late afternoon hours. I've never felt scared while there.

We met some very nice ducks and geese. There were some model boaters out in the morning which my son was super excited about! The walk is very nice, lots of folks fishing, and we got to see a great blue heron! My son was very excited about all of the wildlife he got to see, and was sad that none of the gopher snakes made a guest appearance. I guess we'll have to come back! A really nice walk after the strenuous hike we had done the day before. We will be back!

I love this place for walks. it's super shaded in most parts. just a precaution for woman to come with a partner, a woman walking the trail was recently dragged into one of the bushes by a man and was raped. so never come alone.
