Cute little Park!

This park has beautiful boulders and is quite scenic. Be sure to stop off here on your way into town. We enjoyed the scenery and the water.

Great place to watch people that are on the lake. Plenty of shade and picnic tables for you to relax and enjoy the view. was a great little walk for us since it was only two blocks from our hotel

This is a really cute spot for a picnic. Lot's of gnats though. The view is just lovely and my kids had a blast finding rocks and hanging out on the pier.

This is a delightful place to bring a book. Each time that you look up from what you are reading the scene has changed--clouds, ducks on the water, sunlight glinting on the surface of the lake.

This is a really nice park that allow dogs on leash. Walk up the slight hill and you have a view of the water. Bathrooms on site.

The community did a splendid job of making this bay into a nice picturesque hangout for couples. It's right of the highway and parking is super easy. You can come by with your wife or loved one to take amazing pictures of the park overlooking the bay. It has a miniature Lake Tahoe feel to it with the island in... More

This park is a wonderful place to run, picnic or just enjoy the bay. Thankfully with all the snow this season there is water in the bay.

Lake was frozen and it had really pretty views. Nice to walk around. Quick trip there. Cute Louie wood bear to take a picture in front of.

Come here everytime I visit BBL. What I love the most is the view of Big Bear Lake. However, the last couple of years the bayarea is pretty dried out. Locals say that it is common but K would be a little bit alarmed by now. Bring your lunch or sandwich, a cold drink or coffee and enjoy the scenery.
