park opens at 0800 hrs and closes at 1730 hrs (530 PM). no dogs are allowed. parking is free but you realy need to find a spot.
Great place for a run. Some stationary workout equipment.
Minutes from downtown, feels like an escape from the city!
Awesome sunsets and cool ocean breeze that's wonderful on a hot summer day
Great dog walk and stop to feed the ducks!
I walked laps around the lake plenty of times, but I was not aware of the trails west of the lake till I saw the map on this app. You can get a serious workout hiking the trails on the west side.
I just went around the mile track around the lake. It's so great! The weather is nice, the view is beautiful,and the track is great for racking up the miles!
Pretty but most of all relaxing
Very pretty. Par course there, if you're into that. Lots of swans and other rad birds.
Love to take my dog out here ❤️
Pretty but run down. Nice walk with some shade.
I jog the back trails along with the lake trail X2 for a total distance of about 4.75 miles. this is close to me, so very convenient.
love this area, my grandma has been hiking here for years. nice area, safe and the ducks are loud but cute. i come here almost once a month.
if you go to what looks like a deserted area and see a baseball field keep going and go up the slope! it's a work out!!
This trail is a very easy, beautiful jog around the lake. Lots of trees, so it gives just enough shade, small playground and fishing area for the kids. Very family friendly :)
This is my once a week go to! Grew up in the area, never get tired of coming here. So peaceful!!
Enough elevation change to make you work a little. Trails pretty well maintained but signage was a bit spotty. Not enough to detract from some nice scenery.
Relaxing at Chollas Lake: It's a little oasis with the sweetest wildlife perks. Walking from the parking lot toward the lake, one is likely to be enthusiastically greeted by pigeons and squirrels actually sitting side by side hoping for offerings of food. They are more likely to run towards you than away from you. And, it's an amazing experience to sit at the concrete table surrounded by very large birds who act as if you are one of them. Here you can forget that you're in the city, and forget your cares. Jog, walk, sit, or just enjoy the experience being a few incredible inches away from animals that don't mind you being there as long as you wish.
