  • I've spent many hours going around this park. Parking at Sertoma makes it easy to access the trail around the lake.

  • 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.
