Great place for family reunion!

We reserved an area for our family reunion and this place was great! Lots of space for the kids to play, a p!e parking on a busy day, ice large grill to use.

This park is a real disappointment. It's not well maintained, lots of trash on the grounds, the water in the lake looks bad, there is little shade and you have to pay to park.

With our drought, the lake is still nice for a picnic. One person was even fishing while we were there. There are nice picnic areas all around the lake; it was spring. There is an excellent skateboard park here. The 68,000 square foot moonscape roller park features the world's largest "cradle", the tallest vertical wall, and the largest full-pipe. There... More

This skatepark should not be missed if you skateboard, scooter, or bmx. The $3 daily admission is well worth it, as the park is huge and has tons of great features. Make sure you have a helmet, kneepads and elbow pads or you will have to rent them there, and go early in the day to avoid massive crowds. If... More

I've fished most of the lakes in Santa Clara county and Cunningham is by far on the bottom of my list. While it is a very nice scenic park the fishing here is pretty terrible because of the algae growth. It seems like a waste stocking the lake with trout because of the algae. I'm pretty good at catching various... More

Just an average park - dry, not much to do. Lots of "questionable" people hang out here, too - - not a great place for families.

We walked around the park. Since this was our first time there, I was disappointed to see that it was not kept up by the city. They could at least water the place and pick up the litter.

I'm reviewing the skate park part of Lake Cunningham only, since that's the only experience we've had at Cunningham. My kids love to skate board and we heard this place was very kid-friendly. It is! They have a lot of rules for the skaters and have people throughout the skate park to make sure everything is ok and that rules... More

I went there to take my dog for a walk and was told that dogs were not allowed. We were already half way around the lake to had to finish our walk. Enjoyed the walk anyway.
