  • Very pretty lake, we had a nice walk around this lake, lush vegetation, not too many tourists, a good time  more »
  • I did some long walks in this area and found it quite serene and attractive, even during the winter. The lakes are among the best features of this great city.  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.
