Walk around the lake in a beautiful urban park, swans, birds, fall colors abound.

North side of the lake is quiet and peaceful. Saw a cardinal, blue heron, American sparrow, European Starling and blue jays. Eastern side of lake near Lefrak Center is crowded.

Beautiful and clean. Pristinely paved track with clear signage indicating the directions and lane assignments for walkers/runners and bikers.

This is an incredible park! You can keep to main roads or go off the main tracks though more dense trees and it gets seriously beautiful and wild!! Totally unexpected but this might be my favourite park in New York. Saw lots of bird life and animals going about their day which added to the magic.

Great place to walk the dogs. In the winter there is music from the ice skating rink!
