Lots of free parking in this park. Nice selection of slides and swings. Stretch your legs around the boating lake then use one of the many bbq tables available. Clean and safe - top spot.

The Atascadero lake park has it all. The lake, beautiful shade trees, breezes, the zoo (if you like), waling path around the lake, tables and awesome play structures for kids of all ages - really!

No! Absolutely not. If the water touches any part of your body you should amputate immediately. Lol. Seriously though, it’s not safe.
