This park provides a charming, secluded nature getaway, mostly utilized by locals in the warmer months. There are two parts of the lake, one smaller area used for swimming, equipped with a lifeguard on duty in the summer, and a larger part that is open for fishing year-round. Situated in Tilden Park , the lake features a sandy beach, grassy knolls, a refreshment stand, a nearby parking lot and picnic tables.
I grew up with Tilden Park and Lake Anza in my back yard. In addition to Lake Anza this park offers plenty of attractions for everyone:
1) Small railroad at top of park
2) Tons of hiking trails, many with fantastic views
looking out towards San Franciso, The Penninsula,
Marin County, and beyond northward and inland.
3) A wonderfully challenging 18 hole golf course
with driving range
4) A botanical garden full of native California
5) The Brazilian Room from a U.S. fair- great for
wedding receptions, company gatherings, etc.
6) Polo Fields A beautiful authetic old carousel
7) Little farm for the young and young at heart
8) Tennis Courts
9) Jewel Lake (small lake to hike around with
enormous old oaks nearby)
18)Inspiration Point-access to hiking and biking
trails great views almost every direction
I miss hiking the trails along the creek with the scent of moss and underbrush, musky, warm and inviting. (The essential oil Spikenard can transport me back.) My dogs absolutely loved the place, obviously enjoying the runs and scents themselves. The "mini" redwoods call out to be hugged. Yes, hugged. And stroked. Definately on my list of great places to be on a clear or misty day.
