Walk around the lake with your dog - good exercise for everyone! Parking is along the roadside- fun to find the lake among so many homes.

Right in the middle of a residential area, this oasis provides peaceful walks and plenty of ducks, geese and squirrels. There is lots of free parking and kids love the change of scenery.

Right now Lake Murray is alive with beautiful wild flowers. I wanted to drive to Anza/Borrego to see the Super Bloom but didn't want to fight traffic. I walked around the lake today and it is beautiful.

We have enjoyed kayaking on Lake Murray and observing all the birds, the walking path around the lake, having picnics and throwing horshoes. You can fish at Lake Murray and rent paddle boats. It's such a beautiful and relaxing setting!
