Nice little gem next to Dennis The Menace Park. We had our toddler and two older children with us. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Wide array of life vests to choose from. Boats appeared clean and well maintained.

Always wanted to try a paddle boat and now we did it with the kids! They loved it. $20/half hour is cheap and pretty much all you need to go around the lake once without rushing. Kids enjoyed it and it was memorable.

We went to El Estero Boating. They have reasonable prices. They have paddle boats and also some elegant looking large swan paddle boats. El Estero Lake is pretty.
