Trail shared by Jose Diaz

This little gem sits right off the famous Clove Lakes Park.

Family Friendly A playground and dog park make this a treat for the whole family.

Description

The lake is surrounded by trees and multiple pathways that connect several neighborhoods; Silver Lake, West Brighton, Grimes Hill, and Tompkinsville. This park makes for a great destination for light walks, hiking, cycling, and running.

There are plenty of open grassy hills for relaxing or exploring off the path, and a playground, plus dog park for loved ones who aren't as interested in hiking as you might be. Spring, Fall, and Winter outings are ideal. Sunset by the lake is always a treat.
