If you are looking for an easy destination where the kids can try out kayaks, paddle boats, and even sail boats compete with instuctors and camps, then this is your spot.
Located by Shoreline Amphitheather and down the street from the movie theaters, Laser Tag, and even Google, this is a great little park with a lovely shoreline area to walk and even a little golf course. Great for families!

Pros:
Fun for kids
Boats, boats and more boats
Shallow, calm waters with lots of folks watching so it's pretty safe
Great pathways for biking and rollerblades
Small restaurant and bathrooms
Instuctors on site for lessons
Great kids camps in the summer

Cons:
No dogs allowed
WAY too much goose poop everywhere, don't sit down on the grass - ever.

So many people that I have spoken to said no vacation this year just cant afford it. I always say to them do a local vacation and start out the first day if not a couple at Shoreline. You can go bike riding, small boat sailing, Kite flying. Bring a box lunch meet some great people. The kids love it and so do the grown up's

The lake area is great for getting out, walking, biking and general exercising. The bird life is beautiful and plentiful, especially geese. The lake water is fairly clean, but not for swimming. The aquatic center has rentals, and lessons if you want to learn how to paddle-board, windsurf or small boat sailing (although the services are quite pricey).
The park is open to all ages and all physical abilities.
The Shoreline Cafe has a good menu of items and the food is good.
Bathroom facilities available, however this is where I would downgrade my rating because the bathroom facilities are always a mess, wet floors and overflowing trash bins.
However with this said, the whole experience is really worth it and has become one of my favorite outings.
