“A lovely place to walk in the city”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

The Pavilion building itself is fine, but what I come here for is the mile and half walk around the lake. Even on a cool, overcast May afternoon it is very pleasant. But the best time to come is on a Summer evening, when one joins the promenade of families with young children and others of all ages, and a breeze off the water cools the warm air. Just off the South side of the lake are many restored homes that are worth taking note of.

Keep in mind that Como Lake is not a nature area, but is is a very civilized place for a stroll in the city.

“Bring Back Memories of Years Ago.”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

The Como Lakeside Pavllion was the site of many happy events when my wife and I were going together in college. The Sunday night Hymn Sings were a weekly highlight. We recently have attended concerts and a hymn sing now as senior citizens.

“Distinctive venue”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

They offer free musical programs here in the summer. Food is available at modest cost. Also LOTS of fun to walk around Lake Como and then stop in for something cold to drink.
