We were there in March so we enjoyed it when the lake was peaceful and beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the nice benches and enjoying the view of the lake and the area. We also took a walk. In the summer the lake is more busy with it being a swimming beach (for a fee).

This is a nice warm beach park in the Bay Area. There is a special fee for the beach and the place is crowded on warm summer days but is still a good place to relax on the beach. They have some food available for purchase and we had a good time overall.

The private beach has an admission charge of around $3.50 for adults and $2.50 for children. It gets crowded during public holidays. I would recommend taking a shower after swimming as some people's skin can be sensitive to the organisms in the fresh water (me and my son didn't have a problem but I heard some people complain).

Okay, let me start off by saying that the water in the lake is about 30 percent pee and poop so the water is a greenish-yellow color and is disgusting to swim in. Also, there are sharp rocks in the water that you could easily step on and the bathroom is unsanitary. The only good thing about this place is... More

Clean and well maintained lake with a beautiful view. There are restrooms also. The trail is quite rough but enjoyable. Wear hiking shoes if you want to go round the lake on the trail.

Not sure if I put down the correct date, but swimming at Lake Anza is always a fun time. Again, I believe that it's only open during late spring until very early fall.

Nice grassy expanse perfect for a picnic. Stay around the perimeter on a sunny day. Nearby bathrooms and concession stand too. Parking runs out quickly, so get there early.

Years ago we would rent boats and peddle around for hours. Legs were much younger then.
