  • This is such a nice place to meditate, walk, run, ride a bike, swim, paddle board or play on the giant water structure! I took my yoga mat and found myself under giant redwoods and shade trees with the warm wind whistling through the little valley. Perfect for meditation. Lots of grass, trails, a little sandy beach, tables for picnics or having a birthday party. responsible PET owners allowed. $7 a car. It is a beautiful and serene park as well as fun and lively. A sure bet to visit!!
  • So beautiful. Nice 2mile walkway around lake. Other people walking too, safe, not isolated unless you want to venture off. There is a lagoon for swimming and great for families too. Campsites also on lake . $7 parking, credit cards or cash. Enjoy!!
