This lake is just over 3 miles around, so it's a good distance for walking, running, or biking. I have, in the past, biked there from my home adding another miles both ways. It's a very popular lake so if you drive, sometimes it can be hard to get parking. I don't use the beach area, but lots of families... 更多
We enjoyed Lake Phalen several times in July 2015. I would take my kids on their bikes and we'd bike around Lake Phalen, ending up at the beach.

I live nearby and walk around the lake--about a 55 minute walk. Beautiful place to see the change of seasons and the asphalt path takes you up and down hills, through oak savannahs, with wild flowers covering the banks of the lake. Options exist for swimming at the beach or renting a sailboat.
Beach areas is nice, good amenities and facilities. The swimming is pretty awful as the weeds and algae have completely taken over the lake. The trail around the lake is about a 5k (3.1 miles) and is very pleasant with some slightly rolling hills. Great for running, strolling or biking.
our main reason for our visit to the area was a triathlon at Phalen Lake. our transition areas was right next to the beach where we entered into/out of the lake for the swim. We rand around the perimeter of the lake for the run and biked down Whilock Pky for the bike. The bike route does need repair.
This is clean and beautiful lake within St. Paul area and nice place for family picnics or day outings. We went here last week with a group of 4 families with kids, toddlers and everyone just enjoyed a lot. Carry your food as they don't have any option within beach area or in park, i saw a food truck but... 更多

Trail system around the lake is fantastic for running, walking or biking. Some nice picnic areas, easy access to bike... 更多
