This is the least frequented lake in the chain of lakes in Minneapolis. It's more rustic with a wonderful forested area on the NE edge of the lake. There are 3 beaches. Cedar South is well situated and a great place to watch the sunset....More

The trails are nice and then the 1st point were theres swimming in shallow water to the drop off area. It's nice and shady close to the beach area and sunny when a bit further away from the beach in the water.

This lake is located right in the heart of Minnepolis. I have swam in this lake since I was a little girl. When we drive past it-- It always brings back wonderful memories of going there for a swim after school at North High School.
