Lake Johnson

Lake Johnson is a 300-acre park surrounding the 150-acre lake on Walnut Creek in southwestern Raleigh.  The trails around the lake are part of the Capital Area Greenway.  The lake is surrounded by two trails - one paved and one unpaved - that make a double loop around the lake of more than 5 miles.  In addition to the trail, the boat house offers rentals for a variety of boats that may be taken on the lake - canoes, kayaks, jonboats, paddleboat, and sailboats.
