  • The lake has great walking or jogging paths. The only reason I gave it a medium rating is because they use to stock it with trout and catfish. When they did it was the perfect place to take young kids...  more »

  • We visit Atascadero Lake Park every Friday and occasionally spend our kids birthdays there. We feed the ducks, our kids play on the playground equipment- which is pretty cool- and the Charles Paddock Zoo is right next door and is reasonably priced, so we visit there when we can. Atascadero hosts celebrations there for 4th of July and they have a family day I believe as well and they are always A LOT of fun for the whole family. The whole family can also fish there as well. My husband- who is a veteran- loves to visit the Military memorial they have there too. We recommend visiting this beautiful park.
  • Atascadero Lake Park has some great events that happen every year has a nice walking path lots of interesting birds to check out, some great locations for family events, a generally pleasant atmosphere, and sometimes even a lake as well. It was a lot of nice parking, though it can get a bit cramped during events. The holiday night walk around the lake stands out as fairly unique and memorable experience. There are very often mini musical events that happened through the summer Beyond just the standard music in the park. The play area for kids has a good mix of activities, and both sunny shady areas making it ideal for longer play dates.
  • I love this park for the location and playground. I have been bringing my kids here for years... It is so sad that there is so much trash, cigarettes, and glass in the sand. The city needs to do a better job keeping this park cleaner.
  • A beautiful place that exemplifies what a small town park should be. A nice playground for the kids, bbq pits for families or large events. During the summer they rent paddle boats, paddle boards, and kayaks. Big trees, lots of grass, and of course, the zoo next door. Take kids, have a picnic or just walk around the lake. You might get lucky and see a bald 🦅.
  • I love this park. It's a great place to come walk and relieve your stress or let your kids come and play and wear themselves out. There's the Charles Paddock Zoo attached to it so there's an extra activity for you and your family to check out that's inexpensive. Just watch out for the Jehovah's Witnesses always sitting with their carts with their smiles. Great people but a worldwide cult that rips apart families with control and lies and scares it's own people with the word apostasy to do their own research.
