A primary recreation center for the Lakeside community, this park
provides family and group picnic areas, a dance ramada, a skate park,
a children’s playground, a softball field, a butterfly garden,
horseshoe pits, and tennis courts.
Get your power-walk on and discover 17 physical fitness stations that offer a scenic, no-cost workout on the westernmost peninsula’s south shore. On site are 1.5 miles of ADA-friendly multi-use trails, a special TRACK Trail for kids which combines education with prizes via scavenger hunt that is logged online, and regular hosted hikes and programs with both rangers and park volunteers.
The lake is split into two basins, with the west carrying most of its water and the east serving as an overflow area following heavy rain. Waterfowl are common on site; herons, pelicans, egrets, geese, ruddy ducks, and American Coots – not to mention rare species like Cinnamon Teal, Stilts and Avocets.
Say ‘I do’, and hold your gathering inside the Lakeside Community Center, or take advantage of the natural beauty and host your special day in the outdoors. Known for its excellent bird watching opportunities, Lindo Lake is one of San Diego's few natural lakes that provide a stunning scenic backdrop for ceremonies and receptions.
The Boathouse and neighboring Lakeside Community Center are also available to rent for weddings, corporate and private events. To learn more, visit here.
