Walking around the lake is a must for any Hamilton resident. Just be safe though. Always have a running/walking buddy with you. Especially when its getting dark.

A great place to take the kids. Good playground for the kids, a good cafe for the adults and great starting place for a walk around the lake on a paved walkway (approx 5kms).
