Spreckels Lake, San Francisco Overview

Residing inside San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, Spreckels Lake is an artificial reservoir designed specifically for model boating facilities. Better known as The Spreckels Lake Model Yacht Facility, it is named after sugar-fortune heir and San Francisco Parks Commission President Adolph B. Spreckels.

It is a befitting man-made design as it accommodates various bird and aquatic species such as fishes, feral pigeons, seagulls, ducks, mallards, coots, grebes, swallows, cormorants, herons and egrets, domestic geese and turtles. The yacht facility also includes other recreational activities including weekly T'ai chi classes and the annual The Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival. The lake invites locals and tourists for jogging, running, biking, and picnicking.
