Word on the Street

Headed for the beach but dreading the long drive?  Head to Almaden Lake Park instead!  It's the South Bay's only park featuring a sand beach and swim area.  In addition to swimming, visitors can enjoy other water activities including fishing, boating (no power boats), windsurfing and paddle boating. There's plenty to do on dry land as well -- lots of hiking and biking trails, a good kids' playground with water features, bocce ball courts, picnic areas, and rolling lawns for all kinds of frolicking.  Unfortunately the park fills up quickly in the summer months, and parking can be difficult to find.
