I've been here quite a few times and I enjoy walking around the lake. It is quite a long walk so you can If I remember rightlyyou have a choose between two parking lots to choose from. One close;one far.
The lake is very pretty and there are ducks on it;at least when I was there. I would like to see beautiful SWANS there also.

I walk around the lake every week. It's nice to have a lake in the middle of the city. Everyone uses Spring Lake Park: families have picnics, walkers with/without dogs, people on bikes. There's a swimming lagoon open in the summer and a new cafe that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. (It's now closed until next summer.)

Summertime is the best, but year round this place is pretty! It is a great place to walk or run around, take your kids or a dog, and it even has specific spots to do your own paced exercise course (like pull-up bars,etc.) You do forget that you are in the city. There are many trails to choose from or just follow the main trail using helpful maps along the way. We also like to stop and feed the ducks periodically. If you need to step it up a notch, there are places to BBQ, a swimming hole, paddle boats and even kayaks during the summer. Plus it is close to Annadel and Howarth park- one of the best parks around which offers an animal barn, carousel, water spouts, a mini-train ride and pony rides in the summer and some holidays. There are some lots that are free to park in, otherwise fees are minimal. Just be sure to leave at closing time lest you find your car locked in overnight with unexpected fees to pay. ;) (wink, wink)

The perfect place to enjoy an outing with the family. Wonderful little trails to walk on. The vistas are serene and peaceful. It has always been a safe place where I feel comfortable walking. You can bring your dog on leash, just fabulous.

It's in the city but you certainly don't feel like it. It's a big lake, lots of trees, got a side swimming area, boats to rent, refreshement stands and trails all the way around the lake for walking. It was a warm day when I was there but it's a great place that is used by locals to take walks.
