This is the best park to go to on the weekend. I walk this lake 3 to 4 times a week and never get enough if the peace and tranquility you get while you are there. The people are friendly and the nature is amazing.

If you want to hear birds, walk by or boat in the water, smell fresh air, and enjoy your surroundings, this is where you want to head. Lake Chabot brings you peace.
