"Lakeside living in Buena Park"

We don’t get to Buena Park very often, so when we were invited to a friend’s home we looked forward to exploring more of the town. Our visit took us to an amazing neighborhood, actually a gated community called Lakeside. And, as the name implies there was a lake.

As we followed the GPS directions to our friend’s house, our route took us right by the lake where we saw paddle boats and duffy boats out on the lake. There was also a good number of people trying to reel in the evening’s dinner. We were told later that the lake is well-stocked with bass and catfish.

We passed by a complex that included a clubhouse and an Olympic-sized pool. For a small community (350 homes) it offers a ton of things to do. Who needs Disney Land (just 15 minutes away) when this is all at your doorstep.

To top it off, our friend, who lived right on the lake, had his own boat dock and small paddle boat that we took out for tour of the community.

The community is a little close to the Fullerton Airport on one side (the planes are small and few) and a fairly large warehouse park on the other. You don’t really notice either. It sits at one end of the Los Coyotes Golf Club which is a beautiful setting.

On our way home we drove through downtown Buena Park and marveled at its revitalization and the excitement it exuded with new shopping and dining spots that have opened there. That looks like another worthwhile trip for us.
