Inside San Francisco's famous Golden Gate Park lies Stow Lake, a small recreation area complete with waterfall. Local families and tourists come here to rent paddle-boats, have a picnic, or just feed the ducks. Electric boats can be rented. Those who would rather remain on land can rent bikes and roller blades. Ride or skate through Golden Gate Park, then afterward stop by the concession stand for popcorn, hot dogs, and ice cream. Stow Lake is an ideal place to go to for a family day out.
I have gone here since I was a little girl. I have always enjoyed it and take my kids here every summer. It is a great activity when the kids are bored and we always have a lot of laughs while paddling along. There are always turtles and ducks around and maybe it is not the most high end place in town but it is a great experience nonetheless.
There are so many more beautiful places in San Francisco, unless you really want to paddle boat, I'd give this place a miss.
You can walk the perimiter of this lake in about an hour. Some interesting things along the way include a stone bridge, a man-made waterfall, Chinese pagoda, and **lots** of turtles sunning themselves on the banks. You can also hike up the waterfall to to get a nice view of the city (on a clear day that is!)
The boat house and snack bar are a bit shabby. There are lots of picnic tables so you can bring your own lunch to enjoy. And the rental fee for the paddle boats (which seat up to 4) was $17/hour. They also rent bikes.
