“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Great for outdoor activities whether it's walking, biking, rollerblading, ice skating or just hanging out. Lake and neighborhood are very scenic. Great views of downtown.

“Quiet urban oasis”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Nice running trail around one of the quieter lakes in the chain of lakes. The luminary loppet in the winter is an amazing event if you have the opportunity to participate too. Our dog also loves to play at the dog park in the neighborhood.

“Excellent Lake Walk”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is a gorgeous place in the city to walk, look at views, beautiful homes, and great people. It's a winding path near restaurants and shops in places.

“The best walk in Twin Cities”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

It's not the busiest lake, but it's the best one to walk around. The views of the homes around the lake are great and the fact it's not a round lake make it more interesting. If you only can visit one lake in Mpls, make it this one.

“Best Lake- So Quiet and Peaceful!!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Love Lake of the Isles! So Quiet! Great views of downtown! Almost like a hidden GEM! Calhoun and Harriet can get so busy! Dont think you can swim here tho! And definitely know bandshell or tin fish around:/ Just million dollar homes surrounding the lake!!
