Tranquil Lake Merced, located on the outskirts of San Francisco near Ocean Beach and Daly City, is a freshwater lake that is home to many of San Francisco's most popular recreational activities.

The area also includes:

  • Hiking and Walking Trails
  • Picnic Facilities
  • Recently Opened Lake Merced Boathouse
  • Rowing and Boating
  • Water Access for Fishing

It is also very popular with local runners, walkers, and cyclists, who frequent the 4.4-mile paved loop and par course surrounding the perimeter of the lake.
