Lake Cunningham Park

The expansive Lake Cunningham Park is a picturesque destination for walking, sailing, skating, picnicking, boating, fishing or you can choose to soak in its pristine beauty.

Park by the lake

The 203-acre Park was created in 1982 around Lake Cunningham, a 50-acre artificial lake, by the city of San Jose. The lake was named after James F. Cunningham, a civil war veteran who owned most of the land that the park currently occupies.  The park is home to Raging Waters Theme Park as well as the Lake Cunningham Regional Skate Park, one of the largest in the United States.

Fun for all

The Park’s wide open spaces and its distance from the hustle and bustle of the city make this a favoured destination for both locals and tourists. Visitors can opt to walk along the scenic Velma Million Marina or hire pedal boats, kayaks or sailboats in summer. There are also several picnic areas with play areas where families and large groups can enjoy a pleasant day.

Lake Cunningham Park is an idyllic place to set aside your itinerary and simply let the day take over. The feeling is magical, soothing and very fulfilling. 🙂


Please note: Swimming is not permitted in the lake.
