This is Lake Temescal, located at the junction of Highway 13 and Broadway Terrace. It is 10 acres in size and stocked with trout and other species for fishing with a permit. The fish were biting too. There is a beach for sun bathing and swimming is allowed in summer. Yesterday lots of people were there fishing, walking, running, and generally enjoying the fair weather. There was a surprisingly large gathering of nannies and their small charges near the play structure. The homes in the surrounding area were devastated by the 1991 Firestorm but the lake seems to have been spared. Until 1957 a train ran from here to downtown San Francisco across the Bay Bridge. We'd give anything to have that train back.
