Lake Balboa

By Carol Wolfe

With so many things to see and do in our diverse and amazing corner of the world, it can be overwhelming picking a fun family location for a bit of fun.  I like to keep things simple.  With gas prices so high, why not stay close to home and enjoy all of the benefits of living in our modern day paradise?  One of my favorite destination spots year round is Lake Balboa.

Located in the Anthony C. Beilenson water recreation facility within the Sepulveda Flood Control Basin, Lake Balboa is a 27 acre fun filled lake.  Activities at the lake include fishing, boating, kayaking, jogging, walking and a remote control boating cove.

There are barbeque pits, children’s play areas, picnic tables, pedal boats and much more.  While there is no swimming there are plenty of other activities to keep the whole family happy.  Pets are allowed but must be kept on leash at all times.

Check out the fun at Lake Balboa!
