Lake El Estro was once a brackish saltwater lagoon, until in 1874, the stream connecting the lagoon to the bay was cut off, and this became freshwater paradise. And what paradise! The lake hosts a thriving ecosystem.

Over 300 species of birds call this park a home, including many migratory varieties. Turtles, fish and frogs also find home in this pretty pond. And you can enjoy this diversity from the park’s other attractions, such as:

  • The Dennis The Menace Playground- World famous in it’s own right, the playground was helped along by Mr. hank Ketchum himself. It’s got a big number of fantastic structures including a bridge, a maze, an adventure ship and a steam engine.
  • The Monterey Skate Park- Designed by local skateboarders, you can be sure a lot of love went into the making of this.
  • The Exercise Course- The 1.2mile running course with three exercise station clusters (each with 6 stations each) was scientifically designed to give you a full body workout.
  • Fishing- Rainbow trout, Sacramento perch, Sacramento blackfish, Sacramento hitch, carp, tule perch and yellow bullet heads. There are piers all along the park, and fishing licence is a must.
  • Paddle Boat- Rent and explore.

Nearby, you’ll find the Monterey State Beach, the Monterey Bay Waterfront Park, and the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail.
