Description: This is a 614-acre park and it's a great place to walk, run, or even come to relax. From the parking lot, you can loop the entire 4.5 mile lake, or turn back anytime for a shorter walk. Parts of the lake have a gradual grade, so you'll be doing some uphill walking or running for a good workout. There is additional parking around the perimeter of the lake, if you wish to start in another area. During your walk, you can even take a detour and walk to Stern Grove and Pine Lake.
