Hidden within Golden Gate Park is a lake and a mountainous island. Stow Lake which has deep San Francisco history is a great spot for a picnic or an afternoon stroll.
 
The lake offers quiet scenery and abundant wildlife.  The Island in the middle is a journey of its own with a waterfall and multiple trails.
 
The Boat House offers boat rentals, including paddle boats and row boats. The paddle boats are always an inexpensive and fun outing. For those who prefer to stay on land, there are also bike rentals available which can be used to explore Golden  Gate Park
