Very Functional Conference Space

The Pavilion on the Lake provides a very good functional space for conferences, meetings, and other events. Parking is generally adequate and the setting attractive.

I've been here for numerous events like car shows, tamale festival, the local zoo visits and more. The lake is there and is nice for the family to see.

Stopped by this pleasant community park to visit the Veterans Memorial. The memorial was exceptional in quality and size and honored those who gave all for our country. The park had a large ball field, playgrounds for the kids, BBQs, picnic areas and a beautiful lake that you would miss from the road.

The park maybe a great place for the locals, but for visitors, there is hardly much excitement in the park. My kids played in the slide area and they were ok for say 15 minutes of play. We walked near the lake, but there was much less water and stagnant water smell with mosquitos all around the edge of the... More

Atascadero lake park is a great park in my opinion (and my children's opinions) because it has sooo much room to run around and adventure in. Now that the lake is back to full it's back to it's beautiful scenery. The playground equipment isn't 5 stars but the space definitely is!

Atascadero Lake Park is a great place to walk, bike, have a picnic, Bar-B-Que or listen to a Summer concert (Tuesday and Saturday evenings). The music varies with Tuesdays being primarily a community band and Saturday being more contemporary music. Walking and bikes make use of a path that goes all the way around the lake. The Atascadero Zoo is... More

There's a wonderful playground here in the shade of the trees. Clean restrooms and plenty of grass to toss a blanket on. The lake is no where what it used to be because of the drought but on the rise with the water pumped into it.

This lake has been empty sometime due to the ongoing drought in CA. So, it is nice to see the lake waters rising, and the wildlife coming back. This is a great lake to walk around. It is comforting to be able to walk around the lake listening to ducks and other birds.
