Best Park To Make You Smile When Running 

Sigmund Stern

Running is the worst, especially on a treadmill at a sweaty gym. But doing the deed at Sigmund Stern Recreation Grove is not so bad, if not damn pleasing for many reasons. It's relaxing enough to visit the natural atmosphere and get away from the city (and the gym), but part of the grove is a leash-free dog park where you can watch canines and their humans play and play and play more. The track extends to the western edge of the park where Pine Lake sits, adding a marsh-y view to the contagious joy of freed spirits. So there you have it — exercise while taking in nature and adorable animals. That should get you moving.
