A great day as we enjoyed the parks on our mobility scooters.

This is a nice lake to walk around and it's located next to some very nice neighborhoods. It goes through a beautiful little park area and creek and has a ton of places to fish; however, there were a few parts of the trail that had little to no shade which would make it pretty rough in really hot weather, so make sure you put on some sunscreen. There was also a surprising amount of trash on some parts of the trail (we went in spring right after a long winter and they might still be catching up on getting the park ready). Overall, it's a nice paved trail and there is plenty to do at the park, I would definitely recommend Phalen Lake.
