“What a gem!”
Review of Lake Johnson Park

Lake Johnson Park
Ranked #19 of 155 things to do in Raleigh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

The city did it right when they saved this piece of land. Great for a walk or run on a paved trail, for a nice secluded wooded hike, bike ride, boat ride, or even fishing. This is a wonderful stop for a little R&R. You can even kick back in the rocking chairs and watch the birds.

Hard to find parking, may have to wait for rentals. Otherwise, great walking area, moderate level. Love the nature trail on other side of lake also, not crowded.

The walking trail here is perfect for kids, dogs and everyone else. The boat house was recently renovated and the grounds look great.

Depending on the day I love to run either the paved side (3.1 miles) or the non-paved side (2.0) of the lake. Both are well kept and offer some quite bliss in the midst of the city. Perfect for a bit of exercise after work or a nice leisurely walk on the weekend.

we enjoy the lake with paddle boats and sitting on the porch overlooking the lake with our lunch. there is also a snack bar with limited menu. when we finish we take a walk around a trail that surounds the lake for about 3 miles.
