Need to walk off dinner? Need to get away from downtown? Just want to sit and watch the world go by? This is the place. Places to sit, read, have a picnic, yak with a friend - one of Reno's small joys.

When I was a kid growing up in Reno, this was one place my parents regularly took me and my brothers. We would bring the dogs and walk along the shoreline, or bring seed or bread to feed the ducks and geese. Even though the neighborhood has changed a bit and I moved away from Reno over a decade ago,... More

You are better off walking your dog on a leash around the lake than use the dog park. It's just a large patch of dirt. Time for the city to spend a couple of bucks and spruce it up.

Virginia Lakes Park is a nice park to take a walk. It relatively level, nice water area, and a great place to see seagulls, geese, and ducks. We enjoy taking a walk here every so often when we are in Reno. Today was a perfect spring day for that - nice warm sunny, light breeze. Its close to Peppermill Hotel... More

This is a small man-made lake, easy to walk around and very pet friendly. It has containers to drop off your dog's gifts to nature all around the lake. Also has an unbelievable number of ducks, geese and seagulls which have become quite used to humans and many like to be hand-fed.

This place is a good place to get your mile walk in, to relax, to bring the kids so they can play and feed the geese (although your not supposed to...). This is a neat place nestled in a quiet neighborhood.

What a nice gem to find in the middle of a neighborhood to escape and spend time outside while on travel. Just a short walk from the Peppermill and one can enjoy nature and quiet by walking around the Virginia Lake.

If you don't like ducks or geese...don't go. This is where they go to rest before the big trip to...Where Do They Go, anyway? A beautiful, quiet, lake in the heart of Reno. Great for a quick jog or yoga or just walking...

Great place to take a run or a walk around. The thing I like best about the lake is that it attracts TONS of waterbirds ... any given day I'd see lots of ducks, grebes, coots, mergansers, black crowned night heron, you name it! I've often seen people there with binoculars come from far and wide to check them out.... More
