As a mom who likes to explore longer trails with two kids under two, this is perfect. We start at the parking lot and take the long way around to the playground. We stop and hop over the creek, look at the bat houses, and chase butterflies along the way. Much more mature exploration friendly than other local parks. Playground has benches and shade.

Very busy on the weekends but great for the convenience. Need to be careful when passing runners and walkers. The trail is in great condition.

Good urban "hike." If you have the time, read some of the history on the signs posted at various spots around the lake. This used to be quite the happening scene.

I walk here 1-3 times a week. Pretty lake. Watch for the waterfowl sitting on the old pilings - they look like they're levitating. Good view of the front range mountains.

Has always been safe - never once felt threatened.

Great trail route along the Creek. Great for dogs
