Enjoy the beautiful Central Park garden areas
A .83 mile trail loop on the north side of Central Park circles the storm pond and connects to the 55 miles of Maple Grove trails. From here, continue on to the trails around the three lakes in the immediate area -- Arbor Lake, North Arbor Lake, and West Arbor Lake.
Take note that neither fishing nor swimming are permitted at the storm pond or the three lakes mentioned. During the winter, the trail loop and major walkways are plowed.
You might also choose to use the trail tunnel under Weaver Lake Road near Jonquil Lane to access Maple Lakes Park.
