“Excellent Canoeing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

As a team building exercise our company rented canoes at calhoun and twenty of us paddled around lake of the isles for the afternoon. it was a hilarious and humbling experience learning to paddle in the backseat, it looks so easy in the movies.

“awestruck by the beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

when visiting Minneapolis, you MUST walk or bike around Lake of the Isle- gorgeous lake, beautiful homes, peaceful, tranquility. All the lakes and biking trails provide beauty and energy to enjoy- Cedar lake, Calhoun Lake, and Lake Harriet are all wonderful!

“Peaceful”

Very peaceful and great for walking, running, or rollerblading....nothing rushed over here in the quietness of the neighborhood.

This is a 2.5 mile walk through parkland and handsome houses in a residential area little more than a mile from downtown.

“Great for biking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Our favorite place for biking. It is a rather short trail but can be combined to as much as you want.
