Lake Harriet is my go to place for walking and kangooing. While it always seems busy, there is always a place to park somewhere along the trail and so much fun people watching. It's also great to stop at the Bandshell for some yummy treats!...More

It's beautiful to walk around here. Especially when the rose gardens are in bloom. It's not as busy as Calhoun, and there is the restaurant and the bandstand to utilize as well. It's one of my favorite lakes to walk around.

Here is a beautiful lake with a 3 mile circumference, with the bike path a bit longer than the walking path. If you drive to this destination, keep in mind that parking lots have payment stations. You can always park for free on a nearby...More
