  • This is the first park we found after moving to Chesapeake over 11 years ago and it's still our favorite. It's got a great walking trail around the perimeter of the lake, with some fishing decks along...  more »
  • Well kept secret ....I enjoy it everytime. Always clean and kid and dog friendly...a real nice place to run,wald and explore the lake!  more »
  • Many families and dog lovers come here to hike in nature while located the middle of the city. It has a children's play ground, large picnic shelters, plus smaller shelters throughout the park.  more »

  • Great park for a little exercise! The unpaved, hard-packed trail goes all the way around the lake. You can walk, run, bicycle, and bring your dog on a leash if you like. There are exercise stations at intervals around the 1.5 mile loop around the lake. But watch out for tree roots and "potholes" in places. You can fish from designated areas, and one weekend recently I saw a group kayaking and paddle boarding on the lake. They have a children's playground, and several picnic tables all the way around, but there are no permanent restrooms, only portables. The park is very well groomed by city park personnel. The parking area is very small, so finding a place to park can be challenging at times. The park is worth the challenge, though.
  • I love that you can run and have some shade in the summer and some sun in the winter! The 1/4 mile markers are great for pacing yourself! Plus there are always dogs.
  • Hard to find. Beautiful place to visit. very quiet. Plenty of places to go fishing. No swimming or boating. Large trail that circles the lake. Great for running and jogging.
  • This little lake park is beautiful. It has a 1.5 mile walking/running trail all around it with plenty of observation stops. Clear water and just very peaceful!!
  • It's a beautiful place that's not too far from home (Norfolk) with some beautiful scenery, benches and tables which can be used for whatever your purpose is, and long walking/jogging/running paths (If fitness is your thing!) You can also stroll leisurely, but beware: the walkers, joggers, runners, and cyclists are ALL USING THE SAME PATHS! Not that it's a really HUGE deal, but it can be a big deal if someone is not paying attention and they get into the picture you're snapping, or run head on into the bicyclist coming the other way! In other words, it's just like any other park in America, except a lot cleaner than some and a bit less crowded , depending on what time you come. Meaning, if you're looking to have a leisurely bit of quiet time, don't come most of the day Saturday or early afternoon on Sunday, everyone else has the same plan!! LOL I really enjoyed my time there, and there was only one thing that really got me highly aggravated. In some places the water comes right to the edges of the little clear areas, which can be inviting to some people. There are signs posted everywhere however which forbid going into the water. I don't know why, but if the signs are posted there must be a good reason though, right? Well, there was a woman who not only had gone in the water (which was waist deep) she had a small child in there with her! To make it worse, when I walked back past the spot as I was leaving, there were now 2 women in the water, and two more children!!! And these were not teenage children, these were toddlers!! If there'd been anyone around to report it to, I would have gone straight to them, and that's what aggravated me. I could find no signs posted with information for emergencies! Is there really no one who ever patrols the grounds to make sure that serious happenings (say an assault or a child gone missing) can get reported quickly to the proper authorities?
