There is no better way to beat the monotony of exercise than getting outdoors for your recreation, right? Imagine running or walking through open green walkways, admiring pristine blue waters of the lake, and listening to the sounds of the wildlife. Getting outdoors will improve your mood and help throw in some excitement to your routine. Come out and visit Lake Murray near the Murray Reservoir in La Mesa.
Visitors are welcomed to come out and get their bicycling, running or walking done as the path that leads up to the dam and back equals a whopping 6.4 mile trip. How is that for a workout? Not only do patrons come out for the trails, but patrons are often seen enjoying the views around Lake Murray. Bring the family for a picnic, bring your watercraft or boat for a day on the water, or get your fishing gear out for a day on the lake.
The park also boasts their own concession stand — for those hungry visitors — and 10 barbecues and 64 picnic tables for those on a family outing. Leashed dogs are also welcomed to the park to walk or run with their owners.
