  • Loads of sunshine and shade. Serene lake. Popular for dog walkers and strollers. Connects to several other local walking paths. Has some seating but not much. Personal preference would be more shade.
  • I love taking my dogs around the lake.it is very peaceful and serene.nobody bothers you and they are friendly with a passing nod.people pick up after themselves to keep it beautiful!!!
  • This is a pretty great place to walk or bike around. There are picnic tables where you can stop and have a little picnic with family. There is an adequate playground up near the arts center.
  • I like walking around Shelley Lake. I really enjoy water and the lake isn't that spectacular relatively speaking but trail is very nice. Even saw a huge woodpecker last weekend, cool!
  • This is a great place to walk alone, with a dog, bike or job. It easily connects to the Greenway system so you can explore more of Raleigh.
