This man-made lake was completed in 1933 by the W.P.A. The lake has undergone many face lifts over the years. Joggers and walkers make a trek around a half-mile concrete path surrounding the lake, while others relax under the tall hardwoods and pines to feed the exotic waterfowl living around the famous site. Other amenities include a gazebo, piers, a bridge to the island, and a fountain. By day or night, City Lake is one of the most beautiful sites in the two counties. Called "a place for us to come together," City Lake has become a symbol of the Rocky Mount area.
