I love this park, the loop around takes us about 45 min on bike, and you can always double around over the bridge to add and extra 15 minutes. We always see some wildlife and the fresh air and nature is good for us. Love it and bike it regularly.

We try to get out to Chalco a couple times a month for a walk with the dog, run or bike ride. Great place to see the seasons change. Kept fairly clean all the way around. Will always see some sort of wildlife while you are there.

We traveled out to Chalco Hills to walk around the lake on a volkswalk. It was paved the whole way, was fairly flat, but a few hills. Saw some wildlife including deer.

This is such a beautiful place to kayak, go fishing, or just walk around the many trails! There is a great nature playground that kids can play on along with many picnic areas to bring your own lunch! I even took my son's pictures there because the background is so beautiful!

We go to the lake often to walk. A few hills but not bad. I need the exercise. Took my grandson there to learn how to ride his bike.

We live by this lake and it's just beautiful. My son took his senior pictures by this lake, there are many pretty areas. The trails around the lake are well kept and are long for those that want to get some exercise. There are different routes as well. My son likes to ride his bike here to go fishing. The... More

Chalco is really close to my house, and I love walking the trails around the lake. It's typically much less busy than Lake Zorinsky is.

We live only about 50 yards from this lake area. So we walk the dog there daily. It's amazing with the well kept trails and the great views of the lake. Lots of little hidden picnic areas and fishing spots all along the lake.

What a beautiful hidden gem! We spent a beautiful Autumn Sunday afternoon here and enjoyed it immensely! The mulched trails traveled through forested areas and would be a great trail for dogs or for cross-country running. Very beautiful! We enjoyed the gorgeous prairie grasses and all the beautiful fall colors. The girls enjoyed the outdoor classroom with areas to climb... More
