  • 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 paved trail. Easy walk. Needs some cleaning up though.
