“The Gondola Boats”
Reviewed June 1, 2007

There is so much to see and do at Lake Merritt. A nice place to spend the day. We took the gondola boat for a ride and was seranaded, very romantic. Across the street are the Bonsai gardens, a must see and then there is Fairy Land for the children. It was great.
