Shelley Lake Park in Raleigh, N.C., is a great place to take a stroll or, as many people were on a recent visit, jog.
The small lake is surrounded by trees and a 2+ miles of trails, including sections of a greenway. Walking around the lake we saw ducks, geese, turtles and, possibly, cormorants. The cormorants could also have been herons; the birds were far away and hard to see.
There are also basketball courts, a playground, a boat house and an art center (Sertoma Arts Center) located in the park.
Great place to take a stroll with the family on a weekday afternoon!
