All About Lake Elizabeth in Fremont, California

What would Fremont, California be without beautiful Lake Elizabeth? Although there are several lakes in the state with this name, Fremont is home to an 83-acre body of water set on a 450-acre park. Clearly, it is the city’s center of attention for obvious reasons.  Not only are you surrounded by natural beauty and a relaxing atmosphere, there are plenty of activities to participate in, including hiking, boating and bird-watching, and there is even a water park and dog park.

About the Lake
Many are not aware that this fantastic lake, edged with reeds and accented by a mountainous landscape is actually man made! Believe it or not, development began on Lake Elizabeth in 1960, and at average capacity, the water rises to be 7-feet deep.

Another interesting fact is that the Argus Newspaper named it the Tri-Cities’ Best Park in 2004. The lake was also dedicated to Elizabeth, Australia on March 22, 1969. This is the sister city of Fremont, California.

In 1968, the Fremont Sailing Club was established, making Lake Elizabeth their home waters. If you live in the Fremont area or are looking for the perfect home, the club welcomes guests on their boats when extra space is available. Of course, most visitors come to rent a boat so they can venture off on their own! The park offers one and two-person kayaks, small and large paddle boats, stand-up paddle boarding and sailboats.

Participants must wear a life jacket, and no splashing of water or swimming is permitted. Alcohol and pets are also not permitted on boats.

Bird Watching
Lake Elizabeth is a haven for the bird-watching enthusiast. There are well over 100 species of birds found around the water and throughout the park.  You will find several different species of herons, egrets, sandpipers, grebes, ducks, geese, swans, teals, pelicans, vultures, falcons, kestrels, hawks, woodpeckers, flycatcher, blackbirds, thrushes, warblers, goldfinches, sparrows, swallows and doves.

You may also see more common birds, such as ravens and crows as well as seven unidentified species. In addition to birds, there are butterflies, turtles, snakes, squirrels and muskrats.


  • Picnic Sites – There are more than 45 picnic tables that are free and available as first-come-first-serve. There are also 13 that require a fee and can be reserved.
  • Aqua Adventure Waterpark – Lie on the man-made beach, zoom through water slides or float on a raft around the Roundabout River. There is even a pool for the super little ones!
  • Exercise – Two basketball courts, six softball fields, 10 soccer fields, 18 tennis courts, a 1.5-mile exercise course and a 2-mile walking path give you plenty of opportunity to get active.
  • Golf Course – A nine-hole course is found here along with a nice driving range. They even offer golf lessons and internet access is free!
  • Dog Park – This may be one of the most beautiful dog parks you will find in the country. Artificial turf covers 1.2 acres for medium and large breeds, and then there is an area with natural grass for smaller breeds. There are plenty of benches, shade structures and even drinking fountains for dogs and their human companions!

Most people living in Fremont, California, spend a considerable amount of time at Lake Elizabeth, all year-round. You don’t need to be a resident to enjoy this park though; it is a beautiful place to visit if you are in the area for business or pleasure!  And if you’re thinking of calling Fremont, California home, one visit to Lake Elizabeth will make your decision easy to become a full-time resident.

    is that while doing this, you might not be able to locate the drive where the vhd is.
