Sunset Lake Park Walking Path

Having grown up in Benton, I was excited to hear that there are a couple walking paths there now. The longest one is at Sunset Lake Park, a fairly new park in Benton.

The Sunset Lake Park walking path is an easy one-mile loop that circles the triangular-shaped lake. Despite the noise from Interstate-30 next door, this is a pleasant walk and something that definitely enhances the city’s quality of life.

The park is not hard to find (only a few blocks from the fairgrounds) and seems pretty popular with anglers.

As usual, I have posted some of my photos and a gpx map made from my gps data.
