  • I've spent many hours going around this park. Parking at Sertoma makes it easy to access the trail around the lake. 
  • I love everything about this park because the nature is what brings me back. It's great if you want to exercise, fish, walk your dog or bike ride. 
  • Great Lake to walk around as the scenery changes and very popular with families and dog walkers. Go early morning in summer before it gets hot, great to walk in the afternoon on cooler days. Kids play...  more »

  • Normally it's a very very nice flat easy walking park. Today the south end of the lake and the Greenway for a mile south of the parking lot smelled pretty ripe almost like a septic tank issue. Bleach that sucka.
  • Great views of Raleigh's urban natural environments. Great for quick strolls and daytime picnics.
  • Nice trails. Lots of walking. Beautiful lake.
  • Nice area of the Capitol Greenway with a children's park, a 2 mile loop around the lake. It is on the Mine Creek portion of the Greenway. There is a shady paved trail down to the Crabtree River Trail.
  • Nice paved trail. Easy walk. Needs some cleaning up though.
