  • Very good Scenic beauty around this Lake, you have ample parking and it costs $5, but nice place to spent leisure time with Family and kids 
  • If you go for what it is, it's worth all 5 stars. This is a quiet, paved hiking area that winds between trees and lakes. Kids may be a little bored unless you're actively engaging them or letting them run around. If they have energy and love the outdoors - this may be a great way to go. Fun watching the birds bicker over territory, great breeze, and some of the lakes are surrounded with pretty green space. Wonderful retreat in the middle of a large city. This area does welcome horses - that may give you an idea of what to expect.
  • The best suitable for having Chhath festival. Bihari people in bay area celebrate Chhath here for last 3 years. Need water to have few solar powered fountains to make water cleaner and fungi free
  • Went here for pokemon hunting because we heard that there were a lot of dratinis here... Not true! We spent 1.5 hour for walking around the entire lake, and it was too hot. There was nothing except for the area near the parking lots. You can swim here, and there are a lot of swans (I guess?) and ducks here.
  • This is a fantastic park that has great trails for biking or walking, a swimming area, and pavilions for parties or just dining, gardens. Kayaking and boating are also allowed. There are also gardens where we saw many hummingbirds. This is really a great recreational area.
  • Quarry Lakes is a nice place for a family picnic or to take the kids swimming. It is clean and safe with a lifeguard on duty. They also have fishing with plenty of fish in the sea. I never had much luck keeping em on the hook. Only come back for a little nibble and take my bait.
