“Another Lovely Lake Walk”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

A 3.1 mile walk around a city lake with handsome houses and a lot of park space and activity. This lake is busier than Lake of the Isles, but that is the fun of it.

“It's been too long”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Although I live in Mpls., it's been years since I visited Lake Calhoun. I went with several friends this summer and was reminded about what a great place it is. A wonderful place to walk, bike or sail. Playgrounds for the kids. Good food at the Tin Fish. And the surrounding neighborhood is fun to explore if you like elegant old houses.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Uptown Minneapolis is very close and fun to walk around. The lake itself is beautiful and you can swim and rent paddle boats. A fun day if the weather is nice.
