Lake of the Isles Park is part of the Chain of Lakes Regional Park, which averages 5.5 million visitors per year. People of all ages visit the park from adjoining neighborhoods, the metropolitan region, across the state and around the world to enjoy Isles’ picturesque beauty. They walk, run, bike, throw a Frisbee, picnic, sit on a bench, or spread out a blanket. Canoeing is also very popular in the summer as is ice skating in the winter. An off-leash dog park is located on the south end of the park. The entire 2.86 miles of shoreline are publicly owned and accessible to all park enthusiasts.
Lake of the Isles is an engineered lake, created in the early part of the 20th Century. The Park Board dredged what was originally a shallow lake and marsh complex and used the dredged material to create parkland and ultimately, a stately and picturesque park.
