This could be a good park. However it is filthy and overrun by geese and their poop. Everywhere you walk you must be careful. It deserves no stars. Sorry...

There is a one mile paved trail all around this little lake which is ideal for walking or running. It's in a great neighborhood, too. We have enjoyed the trail every day we've been in Reno.

Great place for a walk or a jog. Too bad there are lots of geese hanging out @ this location. Great place to take your child/children. If you have a little one; bring some of your old bread & feed the ducks or geese.

This is a small area, but nice for jogging or walking. Lots of birds and a nice fountain. Some seating to just sit and enjoy the peacefulness of the water. Nice safe area.

It's a mile around of a gorgeous lake with paved walkways. You'll see families on the weekends having picnics, people on lunch getting a walk in and others there just to enjoy the wildlife and beauty.

This is a good spot to eat a takeout lunch and you can park in the shade or sit on a bench and watch the birds and joggers while you do. Fun and easy.

It's a small lake and you can easily walk/jog all around it. Clean, nice park. Easy parking around. Kids' playgrounds and fenced dog park just adjacent. Family friendly.

Great park for an evening stroll. Well lit and lots of friendly dog walkers and hand in hand couples. The park is approximately one mile around with lots of free parking and bathrooms.

Great for walking and bird watching. Clean. Reno spends money on their parks and other public places. New apartments and condos all the way around. The Peppermill casino shows as background. Influential South Reno area homes surround park.
