It's an average park/trail. Wish there were more maps/info on the trail, ways to use other non-paved trails that connect to the paved trail, to increase mileage. The times we've gone it's been extremely busy with walkers, joggers, bicyclists, dog walkers, people with babies/children etc It's too bad people don't pick up their dog waste, there was quite a bit on the paved trail and on the grassy sides. It's also too bad there is SO MUCH goose poop - it's literally - EVERYWHERE. I realize the park can't do much about that, but it's pretty disgusting. We've started going to Hudson Springs Park in Hudson instead...and using the loop trail (also 1.8 miles, although not paved and not flat...but a great walk), and it's much, much better in terms of the goose poop. Also more wooded, and folks seem to pick up their dog waste. May return to this trail in the cooler months when there are less people.

This is a regular for me as it's very close, the lake is very pretty and the path around it very easy although I prefer to go on the trails through the woods, you can easily do 4 to 5 miles on these

We love this park! I'm surprised they're are no reviews because it is quite popular with walkers, runners, dogs, children ect.
Let me start with the pros. First off, it's easily found and there is always parking. It's a loop so even if once around isn't enough, go again. The lake is beautiful even when frozen. Oh and yes we do still come in winter. Just to the right where the trees are cleared is a nice snow hill with stairs leading up. Memorial trees planted all around the lake in memory of loved ones. There are two playgrounds. An outhouse that's clean. Perfectly placed swings and benches to rest or nature watch. Workout equipment area. And last but not least, a dog park.

Cons. Can get crowded. Watch out for bikes and runners if you are taking your time. Also some people seem to forget that it's just not cool to leave your dogs waste on the path that people run on.
