Animal control was rude and condescending. He told our family he was almost going to take our golden retriever, who was on a leash, well behaved, and headed to board our boat. The lack of professionalism was unbelievable.

This was one my first date spots with my now fiancé. We love the location. Very good view of the lake. A nice little walk along the water with a view all around. If you have a family, they have a little beach with lifeguards...More

Great location to run and walk. The playground is very kid friendly as well! The location is great as it's by local eateries, shopping, freeways and more!

I went there with a friend on a nice sunny day,and it was enjoyable to walk the path and on the docks. A great place to take pictures, and to just enjoy each others company! One of my favorite places to chi out at!

This is a wonderful large grassy park that has clean restrooms, a dock, swimming area, fishing area, barbecue pits and an Ivars Fish & Chowder and a Kidd's Valley restaurants with ample parking. Watch the bald eagles diving into the lake after fish.

Yes most of the walking area is paved. I believe there are small trails that branch off the main one that are just dirt but the main path is all paved.
