Despite the busy foot traffic using the aquatic facility or the adjoining park, this is a nice benefit of the area. The lot is large enough so that unless there is a special event, parking can be found. My 4 year old loves to take walks of exploration, visit with the many waterfowl, or just watch all the different watercraft... More

There are many activities you can enjoy here from walking to surfing. There is a playground and cafe with ice creams for small children. You can rent different type of boats or bike. In spring you might encounter baby geese but if you want to see wildlife there are many natural refuges nearby.

We went here on a Sunday to visit the area and we were very impressed. We saw a great game of what looked like kayak lacrosse on the lake, as well as lots of birds and beautiful shoreline. There are kayaks, paddle boats, and sail boats for rent, and lessons available. This is an enormous park with many things to... More

The food was ok, not something special, The level of cleanliness and service is not something some parts of the sitting area smelled not so good! The restrooms out of the restaurant wasn't clean at all, without the great location near the lake, I'm sure they wouldn't had lots of customers.

One of the largest windsurfing schools in the country. Wind consistently good from April to October. Wide variety of equipment to rent. Lots of rules and must be certified to windsurf or rent at this location.

The walk to the cafe is just as pleasant as the cafe itself. There are good trails and wildlife. Food at the cafe is ok, but the atmosphere is pleasant and casual.

Not a lot of people know about this lake at the end of Shoreline Blvd, but it's a great place for some nature walking, relaxing, site seeing, and boating (paddle, pedal, and sail). It's a bird sanctuary, so no dogs allowed, but there is a restaurant on the waterfront you can enjoy a snack, meal, and/or beverage and take in... More
