“great walking path”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

This is a popular after work gathering place for both families and couples. Kids like all the geese here. The path is 1.8 miles and well maintained. The park also has canoe and bike rentals. Great place to go for a walk after dinner.

“Lovely Spot”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Really pretty spot, and it would be a wonderful place when the snow melts.

We walked a bit, and saw many runners on the paths. It was windy and cold the day we were there, so our walk was short.

While the sidewalks were mostly clear, the benches were covered in snow, so if you want a resting spot, this winter wasn't the time.

Geese were more than plentiful--need I say more?

We will go back in the warmer weather and do more exploring and longer walks. Close to the city, so again in good weather if you're a walker, you can easily do this.

“Nice place to stroll”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

Great place to go for a walk, jog, run, bicycle or roller blade. There's a huge playground across the street that my kids love. Lots of geese so watch where you step!

“visit the lake”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Walking from downtown Rochester to the lake is very refreshing and beautiful scenery, first you walk along the river and then the lake with hundreds of geese to enjoy. The walk is about a mile and you can come back on the city bus.
