“Great to walk the dog or go for a run”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Its a 3.8 kilometre walk around Quidi Vidi lake. There are a couple of dog parks, swing sets, outdoor exercise equipment and a skateboarding park. Plus a fairly level trail that a lot of the locals enjoy walking around any time of day. There are bathrooms, but depending on the time of day or time of year they may not be open. It does connect up with the Rennies River trail and the Virginia River if you want a longer walk or run.
There is ample parking around the lake, even the Dominion grocery store has parking available to residents who wish to use the lake.
Its only a 15 minute walk from downtown or a 5 minute walk to the sheraton so its a great place to go if you are visiting and staying there.
