“Pleasant Park for familes or singles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Have been to this lake several times for walks, or to rent a bike. You can bbq, play on the swings and others kids toys. Watch the ducks, fish if you have license. It is a great place in the valley to go to relax or exercise.

“Greatest park in the San Fernando Valley!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

If you like to take walks, bike or cruise around in a paddle boat then Balboa Park is for you. No matter what time of year it's a great place to go for a picnic or a walk in the park. Don't forget the bread crumbs, the ducks love it!
