Lake Hefner is a great place to spend a few hours or a day on the weekend. I've often done bike rides around it on the trail and enjoy stopping at Louie's for a burger and drink.

Hefner Lake is a good place to take the whole family. There is lots to do parks, trails, fishing, boating, eating out etc... Can get a little windy so be aware. Lots of free parking at various locations around the lake.

Off the freeway you will see this very large lake right in the middle of Oklahoma City. Stop by for a lake-side walk and walk into one of the few restaurants lining the lake edge. Walk out to the light house on the point nearby.

Lake Hefner offers a variety of activities from a park with playground equipment, picnic tables, fishing docks and one of the best lakes in the United States for sailing. I particularly like to bicycle around the lake. There is a paved path around the lake...More

Lake Hefner is one of my favorite places to visit, especially as the weather warms up. Grab a bike and ride its 11+ mile trail, or walk and run if you prefer. Sit by the lake and watch as visitors jet ski or fly kites....More

The jogging/biking paths provide a great way to get out and get some exercise. The lake provides a pretty backdrop.

The running trails around the lake are great. It is part of the Oklahoma Memorial Marathon route in the spring. The water is back up (it was way down in 2013-2014) so it is also very pleasent to look at.

I wouldn't think so, it's more like a walking park with paved walking and biking trails. Well, probably more like one long paved trail. It's inside the city.
