Really cute park! I would’ve given it 5 stars, but there was some litter on the side of the trail. Perfect for trail running!

This is a loop of Lakewood's Lake Carasaljo, named for three children that drowned in it years ago. On the south side are additional exercise stops. The north side is tight for cars if driving, but lead past the grand Georgian court College where you can view the "inlet" which I remember from the sequel film to Amityville in the late 70s early 80s
