Explore Lake Johnson Park
Treat yourself to a relaxing evening with a scenic run/walk around the perimeter of Lake Johnson.
The Park has 3.5 miles of paved greenway and 1.9 miles of unpaved trails. The main trail is the "Lake Johnson East Loop", which is a 2.8 mi paved trail. The trail is mostly shaded by the surrounding trees, and is fairly flat at first before finishing with some surprisingly steep hills at the end. Lake Johnson Park also offers boating, picnic shelters, concessions, facility rentals, and a vast array of classes.
About Lake Johnson Park:
