  • Fantastic attraction. Boating, fishing, picnicking, biking, hiking...all in one place. Everything but the boartvrentals are free. A favorite of those living in the neighborhood.  more »
  • This Park is located in a residential area, where a large part is taken by the Lake. You can see typical birds of the northern hemisphere, fishing is allowed for those who have a license of authority or simply take a walk around the beautiful landscape in your surroundings.

  • GOTM loves Lake Murray! We are planning our 7th Walk at Lake Murray because of the beauty of the Lake and everyone that comes enjoy the peacefulness of the water, birds and natural foliage. Thank you ...  more »
  • The lake is nice and has some amenities, boat rentals, store, benches and pathways. The downside is that it is poorly maintained. There are weeds all over the place but if not for the weeds there would be no nature. No grass or plants the whole place is covered in wood chips and trash. The people who use this area leave trash everywhere, so pathetic. The park on the North side looks much better and is well maintained though.
  • Beautiful lake! Not heavily populated. Bathrooms aren't the greatest.
  • A nice 6mile Trail to walk or ride you're bike or roller blade or you can rent kayaks and place to bring your dog
  • I loved this park. The beautiful birds the scenic views and the nice piece of nature in the city. However, I can never return here. The blatant disregard for San Diego city code as people constantly feed birds here illegally is just too much. There are signs everywhere saying that it is illegal and why. Someone was even feeding them what looked like cat food. These birds will probably die from malnutrition and it is just too much for me to bear. It's San Diego citizens at their worst.
  • Wonderful place. What I didn't like about it is that you cannot do running all around the lake because the road doesn't complete full cycle around it. So whatever distance you run or walk, you need to run it back 😁 Also, the water level gets so low during summer and dry seasons.
