There are two beaches and a rose garden, plus boat rentals and free concerts in the summer. A very Family friendly hike and something awesome to do on a Saturday or Sunday.
This easily accessible loop takes you on a moderate walk around Lake Harriet, a popular recreational site for cyclers, walkers, runners, and families. You can cycle this trail in the clockwise direction, or opt to walk. Be sure to explore the surrounding park and gardens, afterwards!
- Good walking shoes
- Bicycle (optional)
