Absolutely beautiful. I bike this several times each season. Both the lakes and the surrounding homes are beautiful.

“Miles and Miles of Lakes and parkways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Bike, hike, roller blade, drive, you name it. Lakes are all connected with parkways - wheeled and pedestrian. Miles and miles hardly describes it. Lots of great houses to see, parks to play, etc.

“A can't miss spot to walk or run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The lakes are some of the most famous spots to go out and enjoy a walk around the lake. While Calhoun certainly is the best known lake, and busiest, the others are like quiet hidden gems too. For single people who are in shape.....there is no better place to try and meet someone.....it may be tough because they're likely running, but if you can find a spot there are a lot of good looking fit people down here.

“Great bike riding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

A perfect spot to circle 3 lakes by bike. You can eat and drink. You can admire the stately homes and manicure gardens.

“Wonderful addition to city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

All of the lakes are beautiful. It is a local past time to walk around a lake on a nice day. It is so nice to have nature right in the middle of the city.
