A rarity, and a true respite, in Silicon Valley. Offering something for everyone, it's the perfect place for a break from the office, lunch, water sports, picnics, events or kid/teen summer camps.

There is a mix of water activities including paddle boating. It is a decent size place but small. If you end up there when its not overly crowded and you are with a small group, it shall be a pleasant experience.
