"Great Place to Walk or Picnic"

As most locals know, the Lafayette Reservoir is a great place to go exercise or spend some time outdoor. There is a great trail that circles the reservoir with lots of surrounding picnic areas an places for kids to play. If you want to go for the run or take the dog or your kids of walk, this is where you go in Lafayette.

Not only that, but there are summer camps here and you can also go out on the water in paddle boats (though I must admit, I've never actually seen anyone using these). I'm not generally a nature type, but even I enjoyed coming here once in a while for the exercise.

At night, the park closes down and then all you can find is occasional teenage degenerate doing the sorts of things that bored suburban teenagers do--don't ask me how I know.

NightOwlnOrinda I would just add that this is the best place not only in Lafayette to bring the kids for fun and sun but in the whole Lamorinda area.
