A highlight and model for any community. Great gathering place with lots to do. Even with the dry lake bed, a pretty spot. The ELKS were prepping for BBQ and a lot of folks walking and lunching and enjoying the zoo. Beautiful band pavilion and event room pavilion. Local art and scout projects abound. Very clean.

Beautiful park with plenty of playground equipment, a ball field, walking path, zoo (for a fee) and picnic tables. Unfortunately there is no water in the lake right now, but it is still a pretty area to hang out and have fun.

If you haven't visited the Lake Park...GO! If you hop online to the lake park's (city of Atascadero) web site, you can check out if the local band is playing under the Gazebo (they do so allll summer long...mostly on weekends). You can walk a lap around the lake in about 15 minutes (it's a little over a mile around).... More

A great place to stop on your way to Morro Bay or into Atascadero. This is a beautifully cared for park that provides a playground and lots of grass.

We always enjoy this event. Many wineries, they had food also. There is a lot of shade so we were able to get out of the sun.

There are many activities that take place here: craft shows, Run-for-Life, soccer practice for young children and sometimes has been used as a Farmer's Market once a week. There are trees, walkways, grass and a pleasant atmosphere.

The drought has completely dried the lake up over this past year. Hopefully, with plenty of rain in years to come, this small town gem will be restored.

I was amazed how many people use the path around the Atascadero Lake for walking, biking and running. It is 1.1 miles around the path we did two times with a couple of friends and the time just blew by. I have found a way I will get some exercise. During the summer months the park host Music in the... More

Take my kids here almost every weekend. Zoo is great. Lake is dry. People are friendly. This is a good place for birthday parties, we have had several here. It's a good idea to reserve your spot in advance, to make sure you get it.

We went for the Wine Festival. It was wonderful. The Park is a great venue for this event. So sad the lake is dry due to the drought. Last year it was beautiful.
