  • I've biked, walked, jogged and snow-shoed these lakes. The 50 mile ground rounds bike tour takes you around all of them. I did that many times. Fall is especially nice to do this.  more »

  • Gorgeous area. You can walk around or do joga. Bring your hammock or have a picnic there. Perfect for canoeing and paddle boarding.
  • Lake of the Isles is one of three large lakes. It was explained to me that the land was donated with the condition that there would be no development a certain distance from the water. This creates a wilderness feel essentially in the middle of the residential part of the city.The road rings the lake. The houses appear to be rather mansion like. I visited during the winter but it is obvious that this is a great outdoor attraction similar to Mount Royal in my native Montreal.If you are visiting the city for business this is a great place to go for a jog or a bike ride.
