The boathouse provides hire dinghies and other small watercraft, but also is a launch facility for owners' boats. The lake is just a small part of the Shoreline Park which has cycle and walking trails with views over the southern end of San Francisco Bay,...More

Customers should not accept this compromise. The restaurant owners should take advantage of the great location to serve better food and make the guests experience a great meal out.

Wife and I rented kayaks on the lake. Best part was the gourmet picnic basket afterward. Includes wine. The restaurant offers several options. Plenty of shade covered grass around the lake to spread your blanket

I love to hike at shoreline, see the great birds, and then wind it up having lunch around the lake. They have great Quiches, soups, salads, and sandwiches.

Borrowed bike for about $40. Rode along the coast for about 4hrs. Reached the airport then came back. Benches available to relax and look at the sea, birds, etc.

Perfect spot for a coffee break during a bike ride in the wetlands and nearby nature trail. Mid morning there was individual attention and unobstructed views of the lake. Just lovely. Now, if only the birds would not feed at the empty eating areas.
