AAA Editor Notes
Lake Sacajawea Park is bordered by Ocean Beach Hwy. and 15th Ave. on the n. and s. and Kessler and Nichols blvds. on the e. and w. Designed by landscape architects in the early 1920s, the park reflects the “City Beautiful” movement of the early 20th century. The centerpiece of the park is 52-acre Lake Sacajawea. Grassy lawns dotted with groves of trees and gardens flank its curving shore, which is encircled by 3.5 miles of trails.
More than 100 species of trees from around the world are on the grounds, as are azalea and rhododendron gardens. A wooden bridge leads to a 1-acre island and the Japanese Garden, which features lanterns, gates, stonework and bamboo screens.
Picnicking is permitted.
