The 6K lake trail is commonly used as an exercise walk/run destination, including by yours truly several times a week. Well groomed wide trail, but with many trip hazards (rocks and roots). Bike trails and access to many other trails. Usually ample parking except the lot can be full on summer weekends. But cars frequently come and go, so spots do open up. Decent beach (two) with lifeguards at one. Picnic tables.

It is a pleasant, easy walk. Nice views of the lake. Walked it on a Monday during the day and there weren't too many other people around.

6 km trail, with a bunch of smaller trails, good to bike or walk, I like to swim here in the summer, we go fishing here too! Has a small park for kids, and rest rooms. Only downside is not enough parking for the nice weather days.

Great place for anyone to visit,MTV walking,running ,and water sports. I didn't give it 5 stars because city needs to upgrade washroom facilities these were built in the 50's maybe a decent change room and bike wash station, not to mention the actual toilets horrible for major tourist and local attraction pretty poor. Maybe take a look at other small island city's have done.

It is beautiful at the lake, the reason for 4 stars is because there was some garbage on the ground. People not cleaning up after themselves. Otherwise it is amazing!!
