There is a snack bar and boat rides on the main lakeand lots of ducks for the kids to feed. There are also trails for hiking and running, of various distances and they... More

This walk/hike was about 5 miles total. We started at Howarth Park, plenty of easy parking, picnic tables, etc, skirted Lake Raphine, then walked through a variety of shrubs, rocky landscape (all on paved trail), with views, and came to Spring Lake Park. Bathroom facilities along the way, drinking fountains, several waste recipticals, handy especially if you bring your dog... More

Day trip from Sonoma to Santa Rosa. Hired bikes from Trek Bicycle Store in town to cycle down to the park. The guys in Trek were brilliant (don't think they get many people hiring bikes but they were falling over themselves to help in a kind of eager to please puppy kind of way!) - and then most of the...

Depending on the trail, runs can be relatively flat or include mild hills and could be 2-2.5 miles for once around the lake or 6 miles and up with detours up the hill into the neighboring Annadel State Park. Just enough friendly traffic around to lake that I feel safe running as a single woman.

Nice little park with beautiful reflections of the surrounding trees. Enjoyed walking around it but beware of the one area with big rocks in the path. I tripped on one and skinned my elbow knee and hand right before having to dress up for a wedding.

If you are in or near Santa Rosa and want to take a beautiful, peaceful walk, take the paved trail around Spring Lake. The lake has fine views and great peace all seasons. Weekends in the summer can be a bit crowded on the main trails but still pleasant. You can connect from here to other parks, including the Annadel... More

I love many things about Spring Lake park -- its simplicity, accessibility, and numerous things to do. In late summer, they turn a swimming lake into a dog pool. My dog and I went twice in September and it is a hoot. Spring Lake is also a great place to go for a walk. I usually connect it all the... More

This park is lovely and beautifully maintained. My husband and I walk our dog around the lake every morning - it takes us about 40 minutes. My only complaint is that some dog owners do not clean up after their dogs and this is inexcusable.

After wine tasting, we wanted a place for our Golden to have fun and cool off. This lake was awesome. $7 park entrance and a donation of $5 for the dog to enter into the lake area. Hehad so much fun and YnYou

Spring Lake Park must be the #1 location for walkers/hikers in Santa Rosa as there are always people walking there... and well they should...it is a nice walk around the lake, plus there are decent picnic areas and there is a swimming pond and a cafe.
